Overview

  • Bursitis is the painful swelling of a minor, fluid-filled Sac called a Bursa. It is an inflammation or irritation of the Bursa Sac.
  • We have these sacs all over our body filled with fluid, which helps ease rubbing and friction between tissues like muscle, bone, tendons, and skin.
  • Bursitis often occurs around significant joints like the Shoulder, Elbow, Hip or Thigh, Buttocks, Knee, and Achilles tendon or Heel.
  • Bursitis mainly happens when a Bursa becomes irritated by excess pressure or overuse.
  • The pain that occurred from an inflamed Bursa may be sudden or build up over time.
  • Bursitis is common in adults, especially after the age of 40.
  • Bursitis is usually caused by using a joint too much or repeated pressure on an area caused by performing high-risk activities, such as gardening, raking, carpentry, shovelling, painting, scrubbing, tennis, golf, skiing, and throwing.
  • A person can also get Bursitis by standing or sitting in the wrong way for a long time at home or work, or by not stretching enough before the exercise.
  • Sudden injury can also sometimes cause Bursitis.
  • Reactions to medications and inflammation or stress from other conditions like Gout, Psoriatic Arthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, or Thyroid Disorders can be a risk factor that can cause Bursitis.

Symptoms

  • The most common symptom of Bursitis is Pain around the Muscles, Bones, and particularly Joints.
