Ischial Bursitis Causes

Bursitis is commonly caused by repetitive movement and excessive pressure.
Traumatic injury is another cause possible cause. The inflammation irritates because the bursa no longer fits in the original small area between the bone and the functionary muscle or tendon. When the bone increases pressure upon the bursa, inflammation of the bursa results. Sometimes the reason is unknown, and can also be associated with some chronic systemic diseases.


Bursitis Treatment Recommendation

Non-surgical treatments generally fall into two categories: physical exercise and supplements.  Surgery can be an impossibility for a lot of people.  Most people who suffer from the symptoms associated with this condition will find the maximum benefit from a combination of both.  If you are not ready to consider surgery, your best bet is to follow the exercises on this website and if you would like to consider supplements, we recommend trying an all natural joint pain relief supplement like Flexcin.  which is based on research done by Dr. Harry Diehl, who did some fascinating studies into arthritis in lab rats.  From his breakthrough discoveries he developed a chemical compound called Cetyl-Myristoleate, or CM8,  which is the patented ingredient in Flexcin (they also sell similar products for Dogs and Horses if you are interested).
