Bursitis Injury Facts Part 2:

Normally, bursa are flat and contain very little fluid. An injured bursa however, is swollen with fluid and not so flat anymore.


The most common bursitis injuries are:
Prepatellar Bursitis (housemaid's knee),
Superficial Infrapatellar Bursitis (clergyman's knee),
Trochanteric Bursitis (hip),
Olecranon Bursitis (student's elbow) and
Subacromial Bursitis (shoulder bursitis).


Deep Bursae separate bare areas of bone from overlapping muscles.
Superficial Bursae separate bare areas of bone from skin or tendons.


Deep Bursae develop in the womb.

Superficial Bursae develop within months to several years after birth.


Household names for various bursitis injuries include: Popeye's Elbow, Miner's Elbow, Weaver's Elbow, Housemaid's Knee, Hod-Carrier's Shoulders, Dustman's Shoulders, Student's Elbow, and Clergyman's Knee

 


Bursitis Injury Facts Part 3:


On occasion, bacteria can invade a bursa and cause an infection. An infected bursa is known as septic bursitis and can be life-threatening if left untreated. So make sure you see a physician!


Septic bursitis is most common in knee joints and elbow joints as the bursae in these locations are close to the skin and most susceptible to bacterial invasion.


It is not uncommon for bursitis to be misdiagnosed as arthritis.


Bursitis is best avoided by staying in shape, taking frequent breaks from repetitive or laborious tasks and cushioning joints if on them for long periods (ie. kneepads for gardening).


A Bursa can swell to a surprisingly large size. In cases of heavy swelling, your physician may choose to drain fluid from the swollen bursa. If a lump is present in chronic bursitis cases, excision may be required.


Clergyman's Knee comes from a more upright posture when kneeling in comparison to Housemaid's Knee. Patients suffering from gout or syphilis can be at higher risk of contracting Clergyman's Knee.

Home Remedies & Conservative Treatments for Bursitis


Once your medical professional has diagnosed your condition, you can begin the most effective treatment that is appropriate for your bursitis. There are a variety of options available depending on the severity of your injury.

Important: An Infected Bursa Can Be Life Threatening

Before we go further, it is important to understand the severity and danger that an infected bursa can entail. If your bursa becomes infected it is referred to as septic bursitis. Septic bursitis is usually caused by a bacteria know as staphylococcus epidermis (or staphylococcus aureus) that is commonly found on the surface of the skin. Bursae that are located just below the skin are more susceptible to infectious bursitis due to abrasions on the skin covering the bursa. With infectious bursitis the bursa fills with pus instead of blood or fluid and the area surrounding the bursa appears read and is very tender.

In the case of septic bursitis, your doctor may prescribe antibiotics to fight the bacteria. Alternatively, the bursa may be drained every 3-5 days until the infection is resolved.

An Infected Bursa Causes Inflammatory Bursitis and Bursa Pain

Septic bursitis occurs more frequently in men than women, with 85% of the cases appearing in the male population. People who have diabetes, alcoholism, certain kidney conditions, or are undergoing steroid treatments are at higher risk of contracting septic bursitis.

As with any infection, it is very important to see your doctor to receive treatment for septic bursitis. If left untreated, the infection may spread through the blood to other parts of the body and it can become life-threatening.


Bursitis Can Lead to Other Conditions and Injuries.

Every time we use our joint that has bursitis, damaged and swollen tendons and muscle tissue move - rubbing against the inflamed bursa. This is why every movement hurts. With injured tissue, pain happens - sometimes a LOT of pain, so we try not to move it. So, when doing something we purposefully avoid using the joint that has bursitis pain. If we can, we use our other joints instead even though it is inconvenient and difficult.

A couple days later the bursitis pain drops, and we start moving normally again - at this point the injury swells up again like it did before - all because the injury wasn't fully healed in the first place. We continually re-ignite the bursitis through our daily activities and now this injury has become chronic (long term bursitis).

Eventually, we use the other joints more and more. This is why the other joints start to hurt more - they are being overused now. Soon, aches and pain can become commonplace - all as a result of the original bursitis and the body's instinctive nature to "protect" the area - all because the injury wasn't fully healed in the first place!

overcompensation-injury-prevention-and-rehabilitation

Muscle imbalances result, placing tension on bone and softer tissues - leading to a misalignment in the body. The extra stress on the opposite side of the body will also result in weakness and fatigue of soft tissue - increasing the chances they can eventually be injured or gradually degenerate (ie. muscle strain and/or tendinitis). This is a textbook example of how you get an overcompensation injury. In some cases, physical therapists warn that overcompensation can be very dangerous as it will affect gait or alignment on a permanent basis.

An injury to one area can easily lead to straining in other areas - just due to the pain response in your biomechanics - making an overall recovery hard to initiate. For example, a serious muscle strain in the right hip can often lead to over-straining of the left hip. Most commonly, the injury occurs on the dominant side, so the risk of straining the other (weaker) side increases. The longer the injury (and corresponding pain) persists, the greater the chance that you will sustain more strain from overcompensation, eventually leading to issues in those areas as well. To minimize potential secondary injuries, know that it is important to deal with your injury quickly and completely.

Truly, living with bursitis can lead you into a vicious downward cycle - which is why it is absolutely critical to focus on methods that improve and strengthen the injured soft tissue in a timely manner. The faster you truly heal, the less chance you have of sinking into a downward spiral of re-injury, scar tissue growth and overcompensation injuries.



Okay, So I Have a Bursitis... What Should I Do Now?

If you think you have bursitis, a visit to the doctor is always recommended, as there are many conditions that can cause this type of pain such as a muscle strain, tendinitis, or even a fracture. If you do have bursitis, only a physician can rule out whether the bursitis is septic - know that septic bursitis is dangerous and can quickly become life threatening. Getting a proper diagnosis is important so you can treat your condition correctly. Once you have been diagnosed and your physician is not advising surgery, he/she will most likely recommend a conservative treatment protocol.


Non-Surgical Bursitis Treatments

Your initial treatment should involve decreasing any swelling, relieving any pain and stress on the bursa sac, correcting any bio-mechanical dysfunction, and then restoring strength and mobility to the area where your bursitis is located. It's also very important to follow any instructions you receive from your physician.

Allowing the area to rest is recommended when you have bursitis, however, some careful movement is required to prevent the joint from freezing and losing range of motion. See your doctor or physical therapist for applicable stretches that will not worsen your bursitis. Avoid activities that may have caused the injury or irritation and begin cold treatments as soon as possible via use of a Cold Compress or Ice Pack. Using conservative treatments, you will experience 3 stages of healing as follows..


Stage 1: If the bursitis was incurred recently or if there is still significant inflammation and pain - use a good quality cold pack and Arnica Pain Relief Cream. If the injury has been going on for awhile and there is no swelling, skip to Stage 2 below.

Recommendation 1: If you are experiencing pain and swelling in the very early stages of the bursitis (first 48 to 72 hours), the first step in a conservative treatment protocol would be to focus on reducing the discomfort by applying a quality cold pack to the injured area along with a high quality pain relief cream such as our Arnica Infusion Cream.

Note: If you are suffering from a bursitis and/or tendinitis injury that has been going on for awhile, you may not need much cold treatment as inflammation may be minimal. Anytime you are experiencing significant pain, you will most likely find our Arnica Infusion Pain Relief Cream to be quite helpful.

Not only will you use your cold pack for the first 48 to 72 hours after the injury, but you should also use it during other stages of the healing process. Some examples include...

  • after any activity that stresses the bursa in a moderate way. It is wise to quickly apply cold to not only reduce the pain, but to also minimize tissue damage that may have occurred during the prior event.
  • If you have a job that requires you to place some demands on the joint where your bursitis is. If that is the case, use cold immediately following work and if the opportunity allows - use it for 15 to 20 minutes during lunch or another break time.
  • If you are in a post-operative situation where cold compression would be utilized heavily for at least the first few weeks following the procedure. Similarly, if you are scheduled for upcoming surgery, then your doctor or surgeon might recommend use of a Cold Compress or Ice Pack before the surgery.

Having a Cold Compress or Ice Pack available at home to use if and when the need arises is helpful. Many of you already do so.

However, too many people over-focus on cold while ignoring the most critical aspect to healing - nourishing the injured tissues with a healthy supply of blood flow needed to repair and rebuild the injured tissues.

This leads to the most important recommendation...


Stage 2: Focus on Increasing Blood Flow To The Injured Area

Even though the concept is simple, improving blood flow to an inflamed bursa is not easy - there is already very little blood flow in a bursa to begin with... Traditional methods require your joint to move to promote blood flow (exercise), but that same motion that promotes blood flow can at times lead to making your pain and condition worse - exacerbating your bursitis.

  • Have you worsened your bursitis (and probably tendinitis too) by returning to work too quickly?
  • How many times in the past have you aggravated your bursa just trying to perform basic tasks around the home?
  • Is your bursitis preventing you from work or activities you love to do?

Most people we deal with tell us these scenarios have happened to them many times in the past. Perhaps it has already happened to you.

Promoting blood flow within a muscle or soft tissue injury (such as bursitis) to help the body heal itself is a concept that has been utilized for centuries. This is where the focus has to be if you are seeking long-term improvement.

Oxygen and nutrients, carried within the blood, are critical for the body to heal itself. Without proper blood flow, recovering from an injury or condition will be delayed...sometimes for a very long period of time.

The real challenge is how do you promote blood flow to the bursa and surrounding area without causing further injury? This goal is further complicated by the fact that most cases of bursitis occur in joints that are involved in the majority of the physical movements we perform each day (ie. knees, ankles, hips & shoulders). Joints are interconnected and pain or mobility in these areas are often experienced in conjunction with one another. As an example, many of the muscles attached in the knee area are connected to muscles in the hamstring and lower leg, which in turn connect to the pelvis and heel - basically the entire lower half of your body.

An injury to one of these regions usually leads to straining in other areas, making an overall recovery hard to initiate. People tend to "chase the pain", meaning they only focus on treating an area that is actively painful, while not taking into account the fact they other areas of the body will be overcompensating...eventually leading to issues in those areas as well.

In order to provide long lasting relief from pain, you need to identify all the factors that are contributing to it. These factors can include muscle imbalances, short leg syndrome, herniated discs, trauma, tightness to surrounding muscle and soft tissue and overcompensation. The list is certainly significant and it can be frustrating for people who may have no idea where to begin.

Aside from a Cold Compress or Ice Pack to reduce inflammation at the onset of tendinitis, we now proceed to Recommendation 2 in your home recovery journey...


The T•Shellz Wrap® for Localized Enhanced Circulation

The best option we came across in our research to accomplish the all important blood flow increase to soft tissue is the T•Shellz Wrap®. Use of this device results in a dramatic increase in blood flow to the soft tissue in the area of application - all in a non-invasive manner.

Have you seen what happens when you add water to a flower wilted from drought? In essence, your injured soft tissue is much like a "wilted" flower; your body wants to heal its injury, but needs lots of nutrients to do it. Blood brings new life to your tissue by delivering healing nutrients and oxygen that are vital for their survival. In addition, the blood carries away toxins and waste cleaning the area and healing it faster. Without a good supply of blood, injured tissue simply won't heal properly.

The objective of the T•Shellz Wrap® is to increase blood flow in targeted areas, resulting in relaxation of blood vessel walls. The vessels then gently expand, allowing for more nutrient rich blood flow along with extra oxygen to reach the damaged tissues. Plus, the enhanced blood flow helps in flushing waste and fluid build-up from the injury site - further enhancing the ability of the body to heal.

Enhanced blood flow (via the T•Shellz Wrap®) whisks away dead tissue and toxins that have built up from your damaged tendon and bursa. When you stop moving your join due to pain, your muscles and other tissue can become weaker and dead tissue and toxins in the area can cause further tissue deterioration - this can lead to atrophy. By clearing the area of toxins and increasing the amount of oxygen and nutrients to your muscles and other tissue, the risk of atrophy (muscle weakness and/or deterioration) is greatly reduced. Keeping your joints flexible and healthy as possible throughout the healing process will allow you to improve strength again once your pain has gone.

Knowing that the TShellz Wrap is an effective tool for combatting inflammation and scar tissue, you should see that this is really the cherry on top of the sundae. The use of an T•Shellz Wrap® covers a broad range, spanning from injury onset right until your injured area has recovered. We actually have customers that bring out their TShellz Wraps after they have fully recovered if they start to feel a twinge... and then they put it away again after a couple applications. It is truly a versatile wrap that will surprise you in its efficacy.

  • When treating any soft tissue injury, an effective protocol will increase blood flow to the injury while the joint is immobile.
  • This increase in blood flow will maximize the body's own ability to heal itself.

Using a T•Shellz Wrap® will not expose you to the risk of causing further harm to soft tissue like you can when using rigorous exercise. The T•Shellz Wrap® accomplishes the goal of indirectly stimulating blood circulation without the need for intensive exercise and as such reduces your risk of re-injury.

tshellz heat wrap

A T•Shellz Wrap® is truly a unique experience. Within moments of applying a treatment, you can feel the healing sensation due within the treatment area. During a treatment, and for quite some time after you finish, the area will feel relaxed and less painful. It's a very soothing sensation and extremely effective.

Professional athletes and those in the medical field have been users of the technology for decades - it really hasn't been until recently that companies like ours introduced the treatment devices to the home user.

tshellz lateral knee

T•Shellz Wrap® treatments will warm tissues in the localized treatment area, thus improving local blood circulation while boosting metabolism and enzyme activity. In stimulating localized blood flow to damaged soft tissue, you provide needed oxygen, water and nutrients to grow strong healthy collagen. In addition, you will experience a clearing of toxins and excess fluid build up from the injury site. Over the intermediate term, this helps to reduce incidents of swelling as trapped fluids will be whisked away - reducing pressure on blood vessels.


Who Should Use the T•Shellz Wrap®

We recommend the use of a T•Shellz Wrap®:

  • If you have injured tendons, ligaments or muscle, then the T•Shellz Wrap® will provide the all-important function of boosting blood circulation where it is needed most.
  • If you are dealing with soft tissue conditions affecting your range of motion such as an impingement or even arthritis.
  • If you have a chronic soft tissue condition that has lasted for years- this device is intended to kick start the recovery process and help strengthen surrounding and supporting tissues.
  • If you have tight or shortened muscles that are a high risk of strain- this device is designed to heat tissue - a known and proven way to increase length, elasticity and flexibility of muscles, tendons and ligaments. The T•Shellz Wrap® is basically a home treatment device to reduce your risk of incurring further soft tissue strain.
  • If you are still working with an soft tissue injury, the T•Shellz Wrap® will help relax injured soft tissue prior to work and after a day at the job.
  • If you are still trying to enjoy your favorite activities such as gardening, tennis, golf, etc - use the T•Shellz Wrap® prior to activity to help reduce chances of re-injuring or re-aggravating those targeted tissues.
  • If you are suffering from bursitis and want to treat a major source of it (inflammation and damage to tissue surrounding the bursa sac). Through trauma, overuse or degenerative changes, muscle and tendons surrounding the bursa sacs will tighten and constrict. When they do, they place pressure on the bursa, causing it to become irritated. Applying a T•Shellz Wrap® to the area will help relax tissue in the treatment area, taking pressure off the bursa.
  • If you have been to a clinic for some form of massage or stretching and your PT or physician has recommended stretching and/or conservative treatments for home.
  • If you have upcoming surgery scheduled for your soft tissue injury, then you will find a blood circulation booster to be a powerful tool after surgery to help surgically repaired tissues recover for long-term health. (once the surgery wound has healed and your physician has given the ok - minimum 6 weeks after surgery)
  • If you are experiencing atrophy in your joint and want to reduce the risk of re-injury (or further injury) while stretching - we recommend its use every time before you stretch.

Increased Blood Circulation = Increased Healing Capability


T•Shellz Wraps® contain a unique Carbon Fiber Energy Pad which is flexible and will shape to conform to your body. This Energy Pad emits a uniform wave of perfectly safe energy over its entire surface. This energy is absorbed by soft tissue in the treatment area, opening blood vessels, resulting in an increase in blood flow. Increased blood circulation is what your body needs to accelerate the healing of soft tissue and this is why we recommend the T•Shellz Wrap®.

The T•Shellz Wrap® is an FDA Registered Medical Device and is suitable for use in therapeutic clinics and FROM HOME. It is completely safe for people and patients to use for themselves.

The technology found in a T•Shellz Wrap® has been used for decades in the worlds of professional and amateur sports - a contributing factor as to why athletes seem to recover from injuries so quickly.

Have you ever wondered by an athlete can return to activity after 3 or 4 weeks following a soft tissue injury - while your average person takes much longer to return back to normal? The secret isn't really that much of a secret - it involves consistent treatments (meaning multiple times a day) using a treatment like the T•Shellz Wrap® to stimulate blood flow to the injured tissues. Most athletes have the luxury of using in-house facilities many times per day.

How many us can afford the time and money to visit a clinic multiple times a day? Very few indeed. This is how you can gain some of the advantages that athletes enjoy in their injury recovery - by using a device like the T•Shellz Wrap® two or three times a day on a consistent basis.

Consistent Treatments = Consistent And Long Term Improvement



What Else Makes the T•Shellz Wrap® So Special?

We believe the T•Shellz Wrap® to be one of the most effective home treatments to increase localized blood flow to soft tissue in and around the treatment area.

We can promise that you will receive a product that is designed to be safe and does what it is supposed to do... reduce pain (as stated in "Therapeutic Heat and Cold", 4th edition. - Ed. Justus F.

When Should I Use My TShellz Wrap During the Day?

The most common question we receive from individuals prior to purchasing is - how many times a day should I be using my wrap and when should I be using it? While treatment plans will differ for each individual and their specific injury, there are general guidelines that should be adhered to.

  • Use a Cold Compress or Ice Pack when you are experiencing inflammation (usually after exertion or movement of the injury area).

The T•Shellz Wrap® would then be used:

  • Right after rising from bed in the morning (as this is when it is most stiff)
  • Prior to going to bed at night (to relax the joint, allowing for better sleep)
  • Before you know you will be using your injured joint (going to work, driving, typing, etc).

A Note On OverCompensation

Since you are reading this, you probably know that bursitis does not just disappear. Over time, it can quickly wreak havoc on your joints due to lack of movement, over-compensation and a change in gait (for foot,knee,back & hip injuries). Pain from bursitis will force you to use your other limbs and this is where overcompensation pain comes in: the other limbs are not used to the added stress that is occurring - the result is muscle strain and commonly, tendinitis. Recovery takes a longer time for such chronic (long term) injuries, but proper healing is essential to regain strength and get you back to the activities you enjoy.

The longer your bursitis endures, the greater the risk of running into serious overcompensation injuries, and in some cases, a permanent change in gait.

To Stop Re-Injury & Reduce the Risk of a More Serious Overcompensation Injury, You Need to Heal Quickly & Completely!

Anyone in need of rapid recovery and complete healing must consider a comprehensive treatment plan that includes an effective means to minimize swelling and inflammation yet also stimulate healing and tissue elasticity. We have found no better set of tools that can be used at home than this:

Conservative Treatment Tools Our Clients Have Used to Help
Limit Damage & Boost The Body's Soft Tissue Repair Process at Home:

  • A Cold Compress or Ice Pack to reduce inflammation of the bursitis (and likely tendinitis) as soon as possible.
  • A TShellz Wrap to increase blood-flow to area where you are experiencing bursitis(Circulatory Boost).
  • MendMeShop Arnica Pain Cream for temporary relief of pain due to bursitis, sore muscles, joints.
  • An Exercise & Stretching Plan to prevent muscle atrophy and shortened tendons. A proper plan will increase elasticity and strengthen the muscles and tendons of the affected joint.

Conservative treatment tools just like these have been used successfully by thousands of soft tissue injury sufferers - just like you.




T•Shellz Wrap® = Enhanced Blood Flow in the Treatment Area

 

We believe the use of T•Shellz Wraps® for boosting blood flow to tissue in the local area of application is one of the most under-utilized home treatment options available on the market today. We have client after client that have tried many options out there and have been amazed at how effective and fast the TShellz Wrap treatment can relieve pain and increase blood flow in the treatment area.

With regular use of the TShellz Wrap:

  • Your pain will be reduced*.
  • Due to increased blood flow, soft tissue in the treatment area will be expected to recover at an accelerated rate with reduced potential for re-injury*.
  • Tissue in the treated area should experience a larger range of motion and increased extensibility of collagen tissue* due to the heat effect on soft tissue. This should translate into a reduced rate of re-injury occurrence as soft tissue is known to lengthen and become more flexible when exposed to warm temperature. (*Chapter 9 of "Therapeutic Heat and Cold", 4th edition. (amazon.com link - Ed. Justus F. Lehmann, M.D., Williams, and Wilkin)

If surgical intervention is required, you will find we have effective solutions for before and after surgery. Key areas for pre surgery is reduction of inflammation, while post surgery the focus is on pain reduction, inflammation reduction, range of motion increases, and minimizing of scar tissue growth. You can read more about effective options for pre/post surgery here.

The Next Step Is Up To You!

Living with pain is never easy as it affects your entire lifestyle. Nothing is more important than making the proper decision when it comes to treating your shoulder. Most methods only mask the problems or provide temporary relief; they do not treat the pain at its source. AidMyBursa stands out in this regard as our goal is to help you for the long term.

If you choose to order through our online shop, know that we keep no credit card data on file. Once the transaction is completed, the credit information disappears from our internal systems.

As you can see, ordering from us is a very easy and safe process, no matter if choosing to order on-line or over the phone.


Are you still unsure about placing an order? let me address some questions that may causing some hesitation...

What is the success rate of the T•Shellz Wraps®? Do they really work?

We try and keep in touch with a large percentage of our customers, and we encourage them to do the same. In doing so, we have received a lot of feedback as we have been in the business since 2008.

We can say that the return rate on our products is only around 5 to 10% any given month. That is exceptional by anyone's standards. Therefore, we can safely indicate that the overwhelming majority of people who purchase from us do achieve benefits with our products.

How much time do I need to dedicate for treatments? Are the products easy to use?

The T•Shellz Wraps® are very easy devices to use. After one or two uses, you will engage in the treatments with ease. Very detailed instructions are included and you are always welcome to contact us by phone or email if the need for help arises.

In regards to the T•Shellz Wrap®, it is ideal to use the device two or three times a day on average. Each treatment session is a maximum of 20 minutes in duration and the device will turn off automatically at that time. Typically, people use the T•Shellz Wrap® before bed, upon awakening (or not long after) and one other time during the day when the opportunity presents itself. For people in an office setting, many will use the device at work (as it can be worn over clothing). For others, they will use the device an our or two after work.

As a comparison, a Cold Compress or Ice Pack would primarily be used following activity that stresses injured soft tissue (following work, after a sports activity, or just suffering a general re-injury). This is done to reduce inflammation and to minimize tissue damage.

How long has MendMeShop been in business

We established our firm in December of 2005. Our track record in this field continues to grow and we plan on being around for many decades to come.

What is your return policy? Is it the standard 30 days?

We go above and beyond what other companies offer - we offer a full 60 day money back guarantee with no restocking fees.
