Our expert says:
if the diagnosis of "bursitis" was made one has to ask whose diagnosis it was- a knowledgeable professional? Bursitis is quite a vague term and one has to take into account that there are other causes of shoulder pain. with the symptoms you are describing the diagnosis of rotator cuff impingement, acromioclavicular (AC) joint problems and others are also possibilties. if you look at the section "shoulder pain" on our website you will find a list of possibe problems with their individual characteristics. See: www.shoulderinstititute.co.za, " Shoulder Problems"
and then "shoulder pain". Mere clicking without pain is not of any significance. Have a look at the site and you are welcome to post more quesions on this or our mentioned site
