What is Bursitis?

A bursa is a small, fluid-filled sac located between tendons, ligaments, and bones. It acts as a cushion or lubricant for movements that involve two surfaces rubbing against each other. Hence, bursitis is the inflammation of the bursae. Symptoms often include tenderness around the affected area, stiffness, swelling and reduced mobility. The proper treatment for bursitis depends on the severity of inflammation and the underlying cause.

What causes Bursitis

As mentioned earlier, bursitis is a condition in which inflammation of the bursa occurs.

Repetitive or excessive use of the joint, which can lead to irritation or inflammation of the bursae and cause pain around the affected area. Activities that often contribute to bursitis include activities like running, jumping, carrying heavy items, and even sitting in one position for too long. In some cases, an infection may occur due to injury or another illness that weakens the immune system making it more susceptible to bacterial invasion. Overuse or direct blows to the area can also cause it.

What Are Symptoms Of Bursitis

Bursitis can cause significant pain and discomfort, making it a serious condition. Classic symptoms of bursitis include tenderness and swelling at the affected area, as well as an increase in temperature or redness in the skin around the joint. A person may also experience pain when moving their joint or pressing on the area, especially if they experience such symptoms for more than a few days.

When the condition is severe, a person may find it difficult to move their joint normally or even walk. If these symptoms are experienced for a long period of time, it is important to seek medical help in order to avoid worsening of the condition. Prompt medical care can help provide better prognosis and treatment for bursitis, so be sure to stay vigilant about your health.
