Shoulder bursitis can be a frustrating and painful condition, and although medication or surgery are treatment options, they can be temporary or expensive. A more sustainable and cost-effective solution is physiotherapy. With the right physiotherapy exercises, we can manage your symptoms and help get things back to normal.
Our team at North West Physio have helped dozens of shoulder bursitis patients develop personalised exercise plans and improve their quality of life.
Our approach to creating exercise and rehab plans is a hands-on approach, tailored to your needs to achieve optimal results as soon as possible.
Exercising with Shoulder Bursitis: Exercises to Try
What kind of exercises can you do to manage shoulder bursitis? Here are a few to consider:
- Stretching: Gentle stretching exercises such as posterior stretching can improve flexibility and range of motion in the shoulder.
- Strengthening: Strengthening exercises, such as shoulder blade squeezes, can improve shoulder stability and reduce risk of further injury.
- Range of motion exercises: Range of motion exercises, such as pendulum swings, can improve mobility and reduce pain and stiffness in the shoulder.
- Ice and heat therapy: Ice and heat therapy can be used to reduce pain and inflammation, while improving blood flow to the shoulder.
Exercising with Shoulder Bursitis: Will these exercises work for me?
These exercises are a great starting point, however, it’s important to keep in mind that not all exercises work for everyone. Due to people’s differences in ability, mobility and flexibility, some exercises may be more effective for certain individuals than others.
That’s why it’s so important to work with a physiotherapist that can help you develop a personalised exercise plan that works best for you. Exercises for shoulder bursitis are not a cookie-cutter approach and require high levels of personalisation.
