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.

Use Your Body's Natural Healing System
to Treat Your Bursitis Injury!


Circulatory Boost & Why You Need It

Your body can heal itself! In fact, your body started healing the moment you injured yourself and it's the blood in your body that makes it all happen.

Your blood is the transport mechanism for everything that's good inside of you. It carries oxygen, nutrients and water.

bursitis soft tissue blood flow pain relief

Substantial blood flow to injured soft tissue (bursae, muscles, tendons, etc) is essential as this is the primary means for your body to repair soft tissue. Unfortunately, when you injure your body, you stop moving and the swelling sets in. That means your vital blood flow can be reduced to a trickle!

Swelling, inflammation and lack of joint movement reduce the flow of blood to your injury. When you are talking about trying to increase the flow of blood to the bursa, you are at a huge disadvantage since there is very little blood flow in the bursa to begin with. This is one of the main reasons why bursitis continues to persist over long periods of time - it is not something that goes away after a week or two.

If there is swelling in the area, you should be able to get it down over a couple days through use of a Cold Compress or Ice Pack - but know that this is a critical time! After the inflammation is gone it may feel like you can return to your regular sports, hobbies, exercise or other activities - but your bursa (and surrounding tissue) is in a weakened state, unstable, and still injured. Even the slightest movement in the wrong direction can worsen the injury and increase the swelling yet again. Most "weekend warriors" and amateur athletes will start going back to what they were doing before they suffered from their bursitis, and that's where they get it wrong. Medical professionals know that the injury is still there even if the pain is gone.

Blood Flow - the natural healing process in your body - needs assistance for such injuries because blood flow is greatly restricted when you are immobile. When treating a bursitis injury or really any type of soft tissue injury (ie. tendinitis, muscles spasm, etc), an effective treatment will increase blood flow to the injury while the joint is immobile. This increase in blood flow will accelerate the body's own ability to heal itself. This is especially true with bursitis, as mobility is almost impossible (too painful) and there is such little blood flow to the bursa to start with!

There are a LOT of people out there that do not understand how amazing a TShellz Wrap treatment really is. Once initial swelling has reduced by using a Cold Compress or Ice Pack - start short applications with a T•Shellz Wrap® on the low setting. After a couple treatments we believe you will be astonished with the results.

Building strong healthy tissue is part of the healing process and needs to be dealt with asap to minimize your chance of re-injury or overcompensation injuries. You can help your bursa during this healing process by maximizing blood flow in the area via use of a T•Shellz Wrap®.

With regular use of the TShellz Wrap:

  • Your pain will be reduced.
  • Due to increased blood flow, soft tissue in the area will recover at an accelerated rate.
  • The range of motion in the treatment area will increase *

No matter what has caused your bursitis and/or tendonitis, it's important to reduce pain, swelling and inflammation as soon as possible. Getting rid of your swelling is the 1st, most important, step in your recovery process. Getting rid of swelling will reduce the amount of tissue damage happening and open up blood vessels so the soft tissue in your joint (bursae, tendons, muscles, ligaments) can receive more blood flow.

Increasing blood flow is then a priority to bring in all the essential elements needed for natural healing within your own body. An increased blood flow is key as this maximizes the bodys ability to self heal. An increase in blood flow accompanied with heat in soft tissue is known to help increase range of motion, and improve the flexibility of soft tissue - ensuring that the soft tissue recovery period does not last years.


T•Shellz Wrap® = Accelerated Blood Flow

If you want to heal quickly, you need to keep your blood moving and that's where Circulatory Boost comes in. What is Circulatory Boost? It's a substantial increase in the flow of blood to soft tissue without the need to exercise your weakened joint. This is what the T•Shellz Wrap® does... you can really feel it work!

Enhanced Blood Circulation Bursitis

Have you seen what happens when you add water to a flower wilted from drought? An injured bursa is much like a "wilted" flower; your body wants to heal the 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 growth and repair. Furthermore, an increased blood flow is more effective at carrying away toxins and waste - this all adds up to increased capability of your body to heal soft tissue. Without a good supply of blood, your bursa and surrounding tissue simply won't heal properly.

Both during and after the treatment, soft tissue (muscle, tendons, ligaments, bursae) will experience an increase in blood flow even though your body is at rest.

In order to get maximum blood flow to your bursa and surrounding soft tissue, you need to help your body stimulate blood flow - you need BCBT. Circulatory Boost is the fast, easy and pain-free way to increase blood flow. It is a key part of a home conservative treatment plan.

Circulatory Boost = T•Shellz Wrap®

During a treatment, and for quite some time after you finish, the treated area will experience increased blood flow even though your body is at rest. It's a soothing sensation and extremely effective. With a T•Shellz Wrap® application, soft tissue is constantly being fed with healing, nutritious, oxygen and energy filled blood. This is exactly the fuel that soft tissue needs to heal.



How a T•Shellz Wrap® Works

A T•Shellz Wrap® is purely a Circulatory Boost workhorse! It is why we made them. They are specifically intended for boosting blood flow, reducing inflammation and relieving pain from strained, spasming or damaged soft tissue (muscles, bursae, tendons, etc). Based on results from past clients, we are confident that they will be very beneficial for most of our future customers.

T•Shellz Wraps® contain an Energy Pad which is very pliable and will conform pretty much anywhere on the body. The Energy Pad emits a uniform wave of energy over the entire treatment area. This energy travels into soft tissue, stimulating blood flow that your body requires to help heal your injury. Blood flow is crucial to the healing process.

Increased Blood Flow = More Oxygen, More Nutrients and Less Toxins = Faster Healing

The unit plugs into a wall outlet to get its power. It has a special signal controller which can be set for 3 different power levels of application (3=High, 2=Medium, 1=Low). The cord is long enough that you can sit or lie comfortably and watch TV, read or surf the net while you're using it.


T•Shellz Wraps® - The Secret to Accelerated Blood Flow

bursitis vasodilation

We believe the use of T•Shellz Wraps® for boosting blood flow in the 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 localized blood flow in the treatment area.

The TShellz Wraps significantly increase bloodflow to tissue in the treatment area - period. With regular use of the Leg/Arm TShellz Wrap:

  • Your pain will be reduced*.
  • With increased blood flow, soft tissue in the area will recover at an accelerated rate*.
  • Due to increased warmth in soft tissue, the corresponding joint will have a larger range of motion and increased extensibility of collagen tissue*. This should translate into a reduced rate of injury occurrance as soft tissue becomes more flexible.
    (*Chapter 9 of "Therapeutic Heat and Cold", 4th edition. (amazon.com link - Ed. Justus F. Lehmann, M.D., Williams, and Wilkin)

Attach the T•Shellz Wrap® around your leg, plug it in and let the Energy Pad do the work!


Why is our T•Shellz Wrap® a Plug-In Unit and not Battery Powered?

We field a lot of calls from our customers that want to know why our T•Shellz Wraps® don't come with a battery powered option. The simple answer is that our T•Shellz Wraps® use a lot of power. We tried looking at batteries, but we found that a high capacity (and high cost) lithium-ion battery would last barely long enough for an adequate treatment time - and then it would need to be recharged. The amount of power that our wrap uses over such a short span of time should really drive home the fact that our T•Shellz Wraps® are real, industrial strength treatment devices; currently, for us to provide a battery option for our wraps we would have to reduce the level of output (ie. treatment power) emitted from the wrap. The lower the energy output, the less effective the device will be which is why our TShellz Wrap units are plug-in units only.


Use a TShellz Wrap to
Deal with Scar Tissue & Reduce Re-Injury Risk!


Do you have a tender, swollen bursa or a chronic bursitis injury that's painful, sore and always seems to get re-injured? This could be a sign that you have a lot of scar tissue in the muscle, tendons or ligaments surrounding your bursa. The growth of scar tissue is ultimately what causes stiffening in and around your bursa, restricting movement and flexibility in your joint.

scar tissue restricts movement and causes pain and stiffness

During the healing process your body will fill in tears in the tendons, muscles or ligaments surrounding your bursa with dense, brittle tissue called "scar tissue". The human body will use scar tissue as a temporary solution and will try to build the scar tissue as fast as possible to heal a strain or tear around your bursa.

Knee Tshellz Wrap for soothing treatment

Scar tissue in the tissue surrounding your bursa is most likely one of the MAIN reasons why your bursitis just hasn't healed. Even when the inflammation is gone in the bursa, scar tissue persists, reducing elasticity of surrounding soft tissue and thus the range of motion in your joint. On-going issues with scar tissue can even result in additional soft tissue injuries to nearby tendons, ligaments, muscles, joint instability, or surgery may be required to remove all or part of your bursa (a bursectomy).

Scar tissue will form fast to deal with and temporarily fix any tissue instability (tearing) around your bursa, but working fast doesn't mean that the job's done right. When scar tissue forms it doesn't come together as neatly as regular (healthy) tissue would. Scar tissue fibers will lay down over top of your injury in a cluttered, messy and jumbled up way.

This is how scar tissue works. The scar tissue that forms to fix your bursitis will be unorganized and won't line up properly with the healthy tissue surrounding the injury site. This scar tissue will also attach to everything in that area, including the surrounding healthy tissue as well. This can result in a long-term fusing together of the soft tissue that stiffens your joint reducing your mobility and making your bursitis even more painful!

Scar tissue is a major problem - even when it comes to a bursitis injury - resulting in a PERSISTENT injury that seemingly never goes away.



Time is the only way for your bursitis to really heal, but by applying a conservative treatment protocol at home (rest, cold compression, an T•Shellz Wrap®, stretching routine), you can boost your body's soft tissue healing process, reduce scar tissue growth, reduce your risk of re-injury, reduce your risk of worsening the existing injury, and reduce the risk of secondary injury by overcompensation (ie. overtaxing your left elbow and shoulder because of bursitis in your right shoulder).


Leg TShellz Wrap for Hamstring Spasm

You can reduce scar tissue growth and inhibit further injury to your bursa by increasing heat and blood flow to the damaged area. We feel that treating yourself at home with a T•Shellz Wrap® is the easiest and most effective way to help improve Range of Motion, reduce pain in the area, reduce risk of worsening the injury while helping minimize the growth of stubborn scar tissue.

The heat effect from the TShellz Wrap will also relax and lengthen your soft tissue to help improve your range of motion and prevent atrophy (wasting away) of your surrounding tissue. This is why we recommend a T•Shellz Wrap® treatment before undergoing periods where there will significant exertion in the injury area. (ie. before going to work, shopping, etc.)

Overall, continued treatment with the TShellz Wrap is intended to relax and lengthen soft tissue while boosting your bodys soft tissue recovery; this helps improve range of motion while combatting atrophy (wasting away) of the tendons and ligaments in the area. The TShellz Wrap is intended to reduce the chance of degenerative conditions by maximizing blood flow where it's needed most, preventing further damage, and dealing with scar tissue.

So, if you're really looking for the best home treatment options to reduce inflammation, increase range of motion and treat the source of pain quickly: a conservative treatment protocol including a Cold Compress or Ice Pack, a T•Shellz Wrap® and a targeted stretch/exercise routine (assigned by your physician or PT) are what you need. This combination of therapies are, in our opinion, the best home based approach to maximizing your soft tissue injury recovery process.


When to use a Cold Compress or Ice Pack:

  • 24 to 72 hours after your initial injury or when you first notice pain and swelling to stop tissue damage, relieve pain, and decrease swelling.
  • After exercise, workouts or activity of any kind to prevent re-injury.
  • Before and after surgery during rehabilitation to control pre and post-surgery pain and swelling.
  • Anytime you feel your injured joint has been over-extended, over-worked, twisted, strained or sprained causing pain and swelling.
  • Anytime you have swelling, sharp throbbing pain or inflammation.
  • Any other situation where you need to draw the pain and inflammation out of your bursa and/or surrounding soft tissue.

When to use a T•Shellz Wrap®:

  • When the swelling is down (usually after applying cold compression to the injury over 24 to 48 hr period).
  • BEFORE getting out of bed in the morning. BEFORE going to bed at night.
  • BEFORE exercise, workouts or activity of any kind to increase elasticity of ligaments,muscles & tendons and decrease chance of re-injury.
  • AFTER surgery (once the skin wound has healed over) to increase blood flow in the area and minimize scar tissue growth at the surgery location.
  • Anytime BEFORE you feel you might undertake activity that will put significant strain on the injury area.

Recovery from Bursitis Surgery (or any other soft tissue surgery)

For Post-Surgery Recovery, cold is recommended by doctors to treat your pain in a natural, non-addictive way and to reduce swelling.

After the incision site has healed and initial inflammation has reduced, use our TShellz Wraps to stimulate blood flow in the area. Using the TShellz Wrap as soon as pain & swelling has reduced following your surgery will help minimize scar tissue growth that forms as you heal. Treating scar tissue is arguably the most important step following surgery, especially in a joint as scar tissue growth will impact range of motion in the joint.

Leaving post-surgery scar tissue untreated can lead to stiffness, chronic pain, osteoarthritis or other chronic conditions. You're more likely to end up with another injury if you choose not to actively treat the scar tissue that develops in the area - this is why pretty much all post surgery recoveries involve PT. Circulatory Boost encourages more oxygen and nutrients to flow to the area to help your body in its recovery process. An increase in blood flow should also help improve the strength of soft tissue in the area.

Bursitis Inflammation Facts:

Bursitis is the inflammation or irritation of the bursa.


Bursitis is most often caused by repetitive, minor impact on the area, or from a sudden, more serious injury.


Bursitis high-risk activities include gardening, raking, carpentry, shoveling, painting, scrubbing, tennis, golf, skiing, throwing, and pitching.


If bursitis persists and is left untreated, calcium deposits can form within the bursae. These calcium deposits limit range of motion and can lead to a permanently stiff joint.


Incorrect posture at work or home and poor stretching or conditioning before exercise can also lead to bursitis.
