Bursitis refers to a condition caused due to the inflammation of the bursa. Bursa is a sac located between the tissues of the muscles, bones, skin, and tendons. It is filled with a lubricating fluid, which helps to protect these tissues against the damage caused by rubbing or friction.
Bursitis occurs when this sac is damaged due to a repetitive, minor trauma, or a sudden, severe injury. Natural treatment for bursitis using herbal remedies may help control the inflammation and minimise the progression of this disease.
Bursitis usually affects the tissues of the elbows, hips, shoulders, knee, and the Achilles tendon. The risk of this condition may increase due to the overuse of any joint owing to the occupation of the person. The examples of high-risk occupations and activities for bursitis include gardening, carpentry, raking, shoveling, scrubbing, and painting. Sports activities such as tennis, skiing, golf, pitching, and throwing can also increase the risk of bursitis, especially of the shoulder joint. The use of remedies for bursitis of the shoulder can protect these joints and relieve the symptoms.
Incorrect posture and ignorance towards the importance of stretching or warm-up before exercises can also cause bursitis.
This condition may worsen as the age of the person increases due to the reduced elasticity and an inability of the joints and muscles to tolerate stress. Regular use of bursitis remedies can protect the tissues against these changes, thereby reducing the risk of this disease.
The common symptoms of bursitis include pain in the affected part that builds up suddenly or gradually depending on the nature of injury along with restricted movements. Ayurvedic treatment that includes the use of herbs and therapies like Ayurvedic massage and Patra Pinda Sweda can reduce the pain and ease the movements.
The bursitis natural treatment based on the Ayurvedic principle of tridosha is aimed at correcting the imbalance in the Vata dosha. The herbal remedies help to maintain the balance of the three doshas or humors and thus, aims to provide long-term relief from the symptoms. The home remedies for bursitis of the knee also help to prevent the condition from worsening by enhancing the natural ability of the body to repair the damaged tissues and protecting them against further damage.
These are the natural herbs used traditionally for conditions like bursitis can help the patients to ease the symptoms and improve the mobility of the affected part.
Ayurveda aims in dealing this condition in a holistic manner through the use of herbs, which stimulate the immune system to protect the joints and other tissues against inflammatory changes.
The ayurvedic doctors in Ayurvedic clinic in Melbourne also offer therapies such as Ayurvedic massage, and Patra Pinda Sweda to help the patients ease the pain and discomfort. The massage helps by increasing the blood circulation in the affected part and relieving the stiffness. In Patra Pinda Sweda therapy, the leaves of medicinal plants are used for the fomentation of the painful parts that results in an excessive sweating.
Ayurveda physician may advise combining the use of these therapies with the Panchakarma Detoxification and herbs to support elimination of harmful toxins from the body, which can otherwise aggravate the inflammation and thereby, worsen the condition.
We also recommend use of Ayurveda diet and lifestyle, which consists of foods rich in nutrients and less of the inflammation-triggering substances to reduce the symptoms and enhance the overall health of the patient.
