Chiropractic spinal adjustments can help to alleviate both the direct and indirect interference of the nervous system and restore normal nerve supply to the joints, organs, and tissues.

All joints have sacs filled with fluid that act as lubricated protection to spots where the tendons rub against any bony protrusion. When these sacs become inflamed, the result is the painful onset of bursitis.

While any joint may develop bursitis, the most common joints affected are the shoulder, elbow, knee, hip and foot. Bursitis may be acute or chronic. It starts with localized pain and with immobility in various ranges of motion.

The causes of this inflammation may be trauma, acute or chronic infection, rheumatoid arthritis or gout. These conditions are almost always associated with a direct or indirect disturbed physiology which is normally maintained and controlled by the nervous system. Direct interference can be any interference to the nerve supply to a joint, like a shoulder. Indirect interference is created when the body’s physiology is disturbed due to an insufficient nerve supply from the brain and spinal cord to organs involved in maintaining the fluid in the bursa sac.
