Cure for Bursitis
Bursitis most often affects the knees, hips, elbow or shoulder. If the bursitis is not affected, then all it needs is some ice compresses, a little medication and a lot of rest. If it is infected, though, you’ll need to get it investigated and treated by a doctor. The best thing for bursitis is of course to not move the affected area.
Think of any illness as your body trying to give you a message. If your elbow is inflamed, your body is telling you that you’ve been doing something wrong with your elbow, and you should stop it. It’s also saying that it needs a break. You should obey your body and rest.
If you haven’t been practicing yoga from before, then this is no time to get started. Wait for the affected area to heal, and you can then start yoga. If you have been practicing yoga, the first question to ask yourself is whether the yoga itself caused the bursitis. Yoga is a science, and when practiced incorrectly, can be injurious. So consider if you’ve been executing yoga asanas or yoga poses with proper form and technique, and if not, work on correcting it.
