Bursitis treatment in Melbourne
Hip pain associated with bursitis can be very frustrating and debilitating. There are multiple causes of hip pain. Bursitis treatment can sometimes be a long process, but we at Balance Osteopathy try to quickly establish a clear diagnosis and plan for recovery.
To determine the best course of action, as Osteopaths, we will take a full and thorough case history to determine whether the origin is muscle, ligament joint, tendon, bursa or perhaps referred from another anatomical structure.
If required you may need to be referred for further diagnostic tests with a specialist as part of you bursitis treatment. Also with bursitis treatment, sometimes an ultrasound is conducted to clarify this, and a local ultrasound-guided corticosteroid injection may be used by a sports physician or specialist. However, in many cases we are able to reduce your symptoms by treating the cause of the dysfunction.
We will tailor an individualised rehabilitation program for you including hands- on therapy, mobility focussed exercises, and strengthening as appropriate.
Overall our aim is to get you moving comfortably again so that you can return to doing what you enjoy.
