Bursitis, a common inflammatory condition affecting the small fluid-filled sacs known as bursae that cushion joints, can be a source of persistent pain and discomfort. 

Joint Pain

Understanding Bursitis:

Bursitis occurs when the bursae–the cushions between bones, tendons, and muscles, become inflamed. This inflammation can result from repetitive movements, joint overuse, injury, or underlying medical conditions. Common areas affected by bursitis include the shoulder, hip, knee, and elbow. Symptoms often include localized pain, swelling, and limited joint movement.

Challenges in Traditional Treatments:

Traditional treatments for bursitis typically involve rest, anti-inflammatory medications, physical therapy, and, in some cases, corticosteroid injections. While these methods provide relief for many, some individuals may seek alternative solutions, particularly if symptoms persist or recur.

The Potential of Low Dose X-ray Therapy:

Low-Dose x-ray therapy is a non-invasive treatment for bursitis that involves the precise application of x-rays to the affected joint, aiming to reduce inflammation, increase blood flow, and promote healing at the cellular level.

Key Benefits of Low Dose X-ray Therapy for Bursitis:


  • Targeted Relief: Pinpoint application of low-energy x-rays directly to the inflamed bursa addresses the root cause of pain and discomfort.

  • Non-Invasive Approach: A minimally invasive alternative to surgery, reducing recovery time and potential complications.

  • Pain Reduction: By promoting healing at the cellular level, Low Dose X-ray Therapy contributes to significant pain alleviation.

  • Enhanced Mobility: Stimulates natural healing processes, leading to improved joint function and increased range of motion.

  • Individualized Care: Treatment plans are developed by skilled radiation therapists, ensuring personalized attention for each patient's unique needs.
