Acupressure points for pain, discomfort or other symptoms of Bursitis

Apply deep, probing pressure with fingertip, knuckle or soft-pointed object, such as a pencil eraser.

Acupoint 14: LU-5

On the crease of the inside of the elbow, on the thumb side

TCM: Lung 5

Bursitis is a painful inflammation of the bursae, or fluid-filled sacs that surround each of the body's joints, with swelling, stiffness and pain. In addition to this acupressure point, you may want to try points for the specific joint affected, such as the knee, ankle, hip, elbow, wrist, or shoulder. Rest and ice are also recommended.

If you have not found relief, try the same points on the opposite side of the body, or go back and try a related or similar symptom or body area. If you have not used acupressure before, please see the Instructions, then click the "Body Area" or "A-Z" tab and repeat.
