Bursitis is an inflammation of the fluid-filled sac or bursa that cushions the joint. Bursitis in the shoulder is called “subdeltoid bursitis,” and it can lead to frozen shoulder if the irritation continues and is left untreated.
The treatment for bursitis is most often rest. Ice and possibly steroid injections may help with the pain. If the bursitis is recurring, it maybe treated surgically.
