What is Bursitis?
Bursitis is a rather painful condition that is caused by the swelling of the bursae, cushioned liquid-filled sacs that cover different bones, tendons and muscles around joints like knees, shoulders, elbows and even your hip. Bursitis can also affect your heel and your big toes. The bursae become inflamed and red which leads to aching and stiffness.

Bursitis can quickly become a disabling condition leading to intolerable pain and easily noticeable swelling and redness creating round bulb-like, liquid-filled protrusions over the affected joints.
These are some of the symptoms you should be aware of:
  • Sharp pain in your joints: hip, knees, elbows, and shoulders are the most common places where Bursitis appears. Toes and feet can also be affected.
  • Redness and swelling on the joints.
  • Increase in body temperature may also occur, causing a fever.
  • Crippling, disabling pain, sometimes making movement unbearable.
  • Redness over the affected joints.
What Causes Bursitis?
While usually associated with sports and physical activity, the truth is that Bursitis can also occur from daily routines and work-related tasks. It’s also worth noting that advanced age causes your body to be much more predisposed to being afflicted with Bursitis, as your joints progressively lose strength and become prone to different types of injuries and both muscular and skeletal conditions.

But let’s take a look at the common causes for Bursitis, allowing you to further identify if what you’re feeling matches this condition:

  • Sports: Many sports that require you to execute repetitive movements over a short period of time, like baseball, tennis, basketball, and golf can cause Bursitis in your elbows, shoulders or knees. If you start feeling aching or you see that some swelling starts to appear, then you should take advantage of our 15-minute free phone consultation.
  • Sedentary jobs: Resting your elbows on a desk when working long hours in an office in front of a computer may also bring about Bursitis. The same goes for college students who put a lot of weight on their elbows and shoulders. If your job requires heavy lifting, your knees and hips may be affected.
  • Other activities: Scrubbing floors, walls or doors, painting, laying carpets and many other home-improvement tasks can hurt your joints if you’re not used to performing these repetitive movements. Nevertheless, the risks increase as we age.
