Bursitis often is caused by repetitive motion, so the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases recommends cushioning your joints when appropriate, and taking frequent breaks from repetitive=motion tasks.
The agency suggests these treatment options:
- Resting and elevating the injured area.
- Limiting the activity that probably triggered the condition.
- Taking anti-inflammatory medication.
- Gentle stretching and strengthening exercises.
- Putting a brace, splint or band on the injured area.
