Yoga pose to bring relief from shoulder bursitis. Bursae are small, fluid filled sacks that help to ensure smooth movement between bones and soft tissue. They are commonly located around the major joints in the body. Shoulder bursitis results from inflammation in the bursae associated with the tendons in the shoulder region. The rotator cuff is a group of four muscles and their tendons located in and around your shoulder. As the name suggests these muscles help to rotate your arm. They are also involved in raising your arms upwards. Over time, repeatedly raising your arms above your head without healthy shoulder alignment can cause irritation and inflammation in the tendons and bursae associated with the rotator cuff. The soft tissue in this region can potentially become impinged by the bones in the shoulder complex. Yoga poses that pull the head of the upper arm bone firmly back into the shoulder socket can help to re-create space for the rotator cuff to move more freely. This can help to bring relief for people that are experiencing shoulder pain. This sequence will be well suited to anyone wanting to focus on getting relief from shoulder bursitis. It will also be beneficial if you are looking to improve overall shoulder health and mobility.
