Your doctor will perform a physical examination of the affected areas to determine the degree of inflammation, stiffness, and pain, in addition to requesting laboratory studies, ultrasound, extraction of fluid from the bursa, and an MRI.
In addition to painkillers and anti-inflammatories, your doctor will recommend physical therapy sessions, exercises to increase strength and keep the joint moving as the pain subsides, as well as the use of a brace to support the joint and reduce inflammation.
