TREATMENTS: Rest is one of the most important, cold and heat therapy can also be used to relieve inflammation:
- A bag of frozen vegetables wrapped in a tea towel is a simple means of providing cold therapy.
- A hot water bottle wrapped in a towel is an effective form of heat therapy.
- Alternating hot and cold water from a showerhead is another idea.
Painkillers and anti-inflammatory medication such as ibuprofen are also usually recommended.
Persistent fluid accumulation in the bursa increases the risk
of further episodes of inflammation.
Under these circumstances, the fluid may need to be aspirated,
and hydrocortisone may be injected to relieve any inflammation
and prevent further fluid accumulation.
