Will a trigger point massage cure shoulder bursitis?

May or may not: The correct trigger point may help the pain at that site, but not necessarily if it is bursitis which can improve with exercise, heat, ice or even an injection.
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.
