What is Bursitis?
The membrane near a joint cushioning the muscle and bone is called the bursa. The plural form is bursae. There are 160 bursae within the human body. Located in between the muscle and bone, the bursa's fluid-filled sac reduces friction stemming from movement. Bursitis represents inflammation of the bursa, which typically manifests in the knee, hip, elbow and/or shoulder. (This is due to the fact that the most significant bursae can be discovered adjacent to the tendons near the large joints of the knees, hips, elbows and shoulders). Other possible affected areas include the Achilles tendon and the foot. Bursitis can be caused by chronic overuse, trauma, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, and infection but sometimes the cause is not determined. Repeated attacks of bursitis or repeated injuries in the same location can cause chronic inflammation.

What are the Symptoms associated with Bursitis?
The inflamed bursa can cause localized joint pain and tenderness, a feeling of warmth and redness around the joint, and swelling. Uncontrolled swelling can lead to stiffness, which can make the support of body pressure a painful endeavor.

How is Bursitis diagnosed?
Identification of bursitis usually occurs by a physician's physical examination. X-rays or MRI's can confirm calcifications in the bursa if the condition has been chronic.
What is the typical treatment for Bursitis?
Bursitis stemming from rheumatic disease or injury can be treated with temporary rest or immobilization of the affected joint. Furthermore, Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs) may temporarily relieve the symptoms of pain and inflammation. However, NSAIDs have side effects that can be exacerbated by constant use. Formal physical therapy may be helpful as well. If the inflammation does not respond to the initial treatment, it may be necessary to draw out fluid from the bursa and inject corticosteroids. Surgery is a last resort.
