Chris- I was reading "the arthritis cure" about using glucosamine w/congrotin (sp). I have arthritis in my spine. I've been taking it for only a week hoping it might help the bursitis too. The spine is already not as painful. The doctor that wrote this does say that it won't help bursitis. He did say that even after years of chronic bursitis that it was "easily treated" with a particular yoga excercize. It's called the bow (& arrow). I've started the stretch. I can barely do the very first part, but I can still feel the stretch. I'm trying to do it slowly, to not injure it more . It can be found at http://www.santosha.com/asanas/asana.html Hopefully it helps all of us. I'll post if I notice any help.
