As an expert orthopedic specialist at Empire Orthopaedic and Pain Management Specialists, we are dedicated to providing comprehensive care for a wide range of musculoskeletal conditions. Our practice is committed to delivering personalized treatment plans tailored to each patient's unique needs.

Bursitis is a painful condition caused by inflammation of the bursae, small fluid-filled sacs that cushion and lubricate joints. These sacs can become inflamed due to repetitive motion, injury, or underlying medical conditions such as arthritis. At Empire Orthopaedic and Pain Management Specialists, we specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of bursitis, offering comprehensive care to relieve pain and restore joint function.


When you experience bursitis, the affected joint may become swollen, tender, and painful, making it challenging to perform daily activities. Our team of orthopedic specialists begins the evaluation process by conducting a thorough physical examination and may perform diagnostic tests such as ultrasound or MRI to confirm the diagnosis and assess the extent of inflammation.


Treatment options for bursitis at Empire Orthopaedic and Pain Management Specialists may include:


– Rest and activity modification: We recommend avoiding activities that exacerbate symptoms and incorporating rest periods to allow the affected joint to heal.

– Ice therapy: Applying ice packs to the affected area can help reduce pain and inflammation associated with bursitis.

– Medications: Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) or corticosteroid injections may be prescribed to alleviate pain and reduce inflammation.

– Physical therapy: Our skilled physical therapists design specialized exercise programs to strengthen muscles around the affected joint, improve flexibility, and promote healing.

– Joint aspiration: In some cases, fluid may be drained from the inflamed bursa to relieve pressure and alleviate symptoms.


– Minimally invasive procedures: If conservative treatments fail to provide relief, we offer minimally invasive procedures such as ultrasound-guided bursa injections or percutaneous needle tenotomy to target and treat the inflamed bursa effectively.

Our team of experts will work with you to find the best treatment plan for your needs.

We offer everything from chiropractic care to massage therapy to acupuncture. And our state-of-the-art facilities are equipped with the latest technology to ensure you get the best possible care.
