Bursitis Treatment in Gwinnett

Are you looking for effective bursitis treatment and pain relief in the Gwinnett area? The bursa is a soft sac that protects and cushions tissue in the body, especially the joints. An injury or repeated strain on the joint can cause bursitis, an inflammation of the bursa. If you have tender or painful joints, you could be suffering from bursitis. Our pain physicians at Medici Spine & Pain offer effective pain relief from bursitis at our clinics in the Gwinnett County area.

Causes and Symptoms of Bursitis

Joints have many moving parts that must work together without causing friction. Bones, muscles, tendons and ligaments need to move smoothly, which is why elements like cartilage and bursa are present to provide cushion and protection. The bursa is a sac filled with fluid that protects the bones and other joint elements from friction. There are over 150 different bursae in the body. Some are just under the skin, but many are in joints. When excessive pressure or repeated motion damages the bursa, it can lead to bursitis. Sudden impact, repetitive motion (sports, workplace) or pressure (kneeling) on joints can all cause bursitis.

Bursitis can affect any bursa, but it is most common in joints that are used frequently like in the shoulder, knees, elbows or feet. When the bursa becomes inflamed, it can cause painful symptoms, including:

  • Swollen, painful joints
  • Difficulty moving a joint
  • Redness and tender to the touch
  • Stiffness

In mild cases of bursitis, rest, ice and OTC nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications relieve the pain and inflammation in the joint. When more severe inflammation is present, medical care may be required to reduce pain and improve mobility. At Medici Spine & Pain, we offer treatment plans to reduce inflammation and gain mobility for our patients with bursitis. These treatments include injection therapy, medication management and physical therapy.

If you have symptoms of bursitis and want relief, contact Medici Spine & Pain today for your consultation. We have locations in the Gwinnett County area, for effective treatment for bursitis and other acute or chronic pain conditions.

We can help you!

Dr. Geiger is heaven sent. After one visit hearing my story of dealing with 13 years of awful pain from shingles, she changed my medications. That night I started the new medications and have remained pain free. I still use lidocaine patches but the new medications have made All the difference. She's deeply caring for her patients and thorough in her questions and examination. Too bad I didn't know of her earlier. She has changed my life and I thank God everyday she's in my life. I can't find enough words to praise her skills and thank her for being my caregiver. Apparently she has recently moved here from Florida and we are glad to have her here.

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Dr. Dosanjh is extremely knowledgeable in his specialty with remarkable knowledge of anatomy and the causes of pain. His ability to diagnose the cause of pain and then provide a complete set of progressive options for resolution is superb. His friendly demeanor enhances the doctor-patient relationship.

Everyone in this office is TERRIFIC. Starting from the front office checking in, and going into the room for my visit with dr. Sonny Dosanjh. Dr. Sonny is EXCELLENT he really cares about his patients, he listens to what I have to say, does not interrupt me, he is very concerned about what is going on with me and my health concerns. He really cares. I would highly recommend this office to anyone! They really care and they are genuine. My PCP recommended Dr. Sonny and I'm ever so grateful for that

Dr. Dosanjh Patient

Thoroughly appreciated the medical services provided by Dr. Dosanjh. Dr. Dosanjh is very confident in his patient care and concern. I would definitely refer others and have been telling others about my experience at Medici Spine & Pain both Kennesaw and Buckhead. I wish he took my insurance, as I have injuries not related to my work incident for which I was seeing Dr. Dosanjh. Thank you so very much, Dr. Dosanjh! The staff is warm, welcoming and cheerful and most helpful.


Dr. Dosanjh is a very smart, caring doctor who is highly skilled in his field. He spends whatever time is necessary to "hear" his patients and to explain the proper and best results course of action. I have a very complicated head and neck injury, so it was essential to me to have someone who truly listened with undivided attention, and thought outside the box when necessary. His staff is exemplary. They could not be more helpful and thoughtful. Lucy in particular is a gift of sunshine.

Dr. Sonny is the best! He has done more for me in 2 months than my previous doctor did in 14 years! If you truly want to get out of pain, then contact Dr. Sonny immediately! I just cannot reiterate how incredible a doctor he is! For that matter, his entire staff is warm and inviting! And to top it off, as a patient you get free use of their amazing gym. Highly, highly, highly recommend Dr. Sonny!


After a major car accident I saw Dr. Sonny for my neck & back pain. He was very knowledgeable about treatment options & really listened to all my concerns. Trigger point injections are helping me currently & I will continue to come back to Dr. Sonny.
