A note about Different Types of Bursitis
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. No matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem, these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of specific natural health remedies.
In gist, there are three main types of bursitis, or causes of bursitis traumatic bursitis, which is caused by trauma or injury to a certain joint; infective bursitis, which is caused by an infection; as well as non-infective bursitis, which takes place in relation to other health conditions, such as gout and arthritis.
Traumatic bursitis can then be further broken down into two main types acute traumatic bursitis, which occurs as a result of a sudden injury; and chronic traumatic bursitis, which takes place after repeated stress and strain placed on a part.
Similarly, infective bursitis can also be broken down into acute infective bursitis and chronic infective bursitis. Again, the difference lies in whether the condition arises because of a once-off infection or an infection which develops over a period of time.
Typically, bursitis takes place in the joint areas, as they are subjected to higher levels of stress and strain as well as wear and tear. The joints which are most often affected are the ankles, elbows, hips, knees and shoulders.
