What Is Bursitis?

A bursa is a fluid filled sac which acts as a cushion between the muscles, tendons and bones. Bursae can be found in a number of places in the body and on average there are about 160 bursae in the human body.

Bursitis occurs when a bursa becomes inflamed. Inflammation can take place due to a number of reasons. Two common reasons include repetitive movement and traumatic injuries.

Bursitis can affect:

  • thigh
  • hip
  • shoulder
  • buttocks
  • knee
  • ankle
  • elbow

When bursitis occurs, the bursa becomes swollen and causes friction within the space that is already confined. This causes the smooth and slippery bursa to become rough and gritty. When an inflamed bursa is moved such as when moving a joint, it causes pain and irritation.

There are numerous symptoms of bursitis. Some of the common ones include:

  • swelling
  • tenderness
  • loss of movement
  • pain in the affected area which increases with movement
