Health Experts Are Investigating the Impact of Taking Glucosamine for Bursitis


Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/06/2015 -- There are more than 8.7 million Americans who are suffering from bursitis, which equates to 1 in 31 individuals. This painful condition is often caused by inflammation in the hip, knee, elbow and other large joints. Those who suffer from bursitis often experience pain in moving and performing daily activities.

Health experts are beginning to investigate the impact glucosamine can have on those suffering with bursitis. The inflammation that causes bursitis is often triggered by repetitive motion, and when it develops, sufferers may experience pain that could hinder physical activities.

"While studies focusing on the impact of taking glucosamine continue, there are already many bursitis patients who are taking the natural alternative to achieve pain relief," said VitaBreeze Supplements spokesperson, Michelle O'Sullivan.

The University of Maryland and Medical Center suggested that using glucosamine sulfate can potentially reduce pain and inflammation among bursitis sufferers. They also recommend other natural alternatives, including flaxseed oil and fish oil. These natural resources are believed to contain powerful substances, such as omega-3 fatty acids, that can also help reduce inflammation.

It is often arthritis patients who use glucosamine supplements. Many of these consumers claim that they have experienced pain relief and improved mobility when using glucosamine. Following the advice of the University of Maryland and Medical Center, glucosamine is now also becoming increasingly popular among bursitis patients.

"Bursitis can be very painful to deal with. The stiffness, aching, swelling and tenderness in the joint can cause a lot of pain and discomfort for sufferers. Those who engage in strenuous activities are highly susceptible to bursitis. However, bacterial infection can also cause bursitis," added O'Sullivan.

Many health experts are closely monitoring the potential positive impacts that glucosamine may have on bursitis. While more studies are still being conducted, a number of bursitis patients are already claiming that they have experienced pain relief from using the natural alternative.

Glucosamine has long been a widely used supplement for arthritis. Some arthritic conditions are thought to be related to a decrease of glucosamine levels in the body, and taking glucosamine is believed to be effective in replenishing this loss
