Bursitis can be successfully treated by resting the affected joints, applying ice packs and taking Genacol® collagen supplements. This combination can help to reduce the inflammation and damage within the joints and hence reduce the associated pain, tenderness and stiffness in the affected area.
Bursitis is caused by arthritis inflammation or by infection. The joint areas most commonly affected are the shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, back, and ankles, etc.
Individuals with bursitis will have pain, tenderness and stiffness near the affected area. Local muscle weakness frequently develops as a result of avoiding painful joint movements, such as those caused by climbing stairs.
Genacol® enables the body to reduce the inflammation and damage within the joints and the associated cartilage by providing the body with sufficient material with which to repair the damage and subsequent inflammation caused by the arthritic tissue.
