Shoulder bursa sac ruptured 7 yr ago, new image shows no fluid, scar tissue, and inflammation. Did steroid injection, fluid leaking, what can help?
Will draining the bursae help heal the inflammation area quicker and last longer than seeing a physiotherapist?
Prefer draining : I happen to be a believer in draining large fluid filled bursa and then injecting a tiny amount of corticosteroid to reduce inflammation. I get referrals from physical therapist to do just that because they have a difficult time treating bursitis. If only small fluid, l opt for oral NSAID like Naproxen and some compression tape. ...Read more
Mild symptoms?NSAIDs: The shoulder is a complex joint with many different potential pain generators (ac joint, glenohumeral joint, rotator cuff, bursa, biceps tendon, etc.) that may become damaged or inflamed.

Usual treatments include ice compresses, rest, elevation of the joint , take Ibuprofen or naproxen. If infected , you will need antibiotics & recovery may be longer than 2-3 weeks. ...Read more
No fluid present in the subacromial subdeltoid bursa moderate edema seen along the fibers of the infraspinatus muscle ? What does that mean . This was due to a auto accident 2 yrs ago .
This : This appears to be from a MRI report. It is best to discuss the findings with the treating physician, who has had a chance to take a full history and examine you. These findings sound unremarkable in isolation. The comment on fluid is usually looking for inflammation in the bursae. If there is no significant signal of increased fluid, it is unremarkable. The edema in the infraspinatus muscle may be some fluid signal with no clinical significance. Most people with rotator cuff problems have tearing of the supraspinatus muscle first, with extension into the infraspinatus only for larger tears. The "edema" may also be normal for your age. Of note, most rotator cuff tears are degenerative and not related to a specific injury, again depending on your age. Again, clinical correlation is always best and you should go over the study with your physician. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
