Bursitis

Bursitis is a painful swelling, usually around the joints. It’s common in the shoulders, elbows, knees and feet. You’re more likely to get it if you have a job or hobby that puts a lot of stress on your joints.

What is Bursitis?

Bursitis is an inflammation of your bursae. A bursa is essentially a self-contained bag of lubricant that keeps reduces friction between two moving structures in your body. They surround the areas where tendons, skin, and muscle tissues meet bones.

There are more than 150 bursae in the body. Without bursa between muscles, tendons and bones, any movement would be painful due to friction, much like the pain associated with bursitis.

Signs and Symptoms of Bursitis

General symptoms of bursitis include:

  • Pain
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Thickening of the bursae

Causes of Bursitis

Your bursa can be injured via direct trauma, or more commonly, via repeated irritation. Certain systemic conditions can also predispose you to bursitis.

During active bursitis, your bursa loses its painless and low-friction gliding capabilities. The added bulk of the swollen bursa causes more friction within an already confined space.

There are several common causes of bursitis. They include the following:

  • repetitive bursa irritation (occurring through repetitive movement or pressure)
  • traumatic injury
  • systemic disease
