Bursitis is the inflammation or irritation within a bursa sac. Bursa sacs occur all over the body and are filled with fluid that helps ease rubbing and friction between tissues such as bone, muscle, tendons, and skin. It most commonly occurs in adults over the age of 40 and affects major joints like the shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees.
Bursitis is usually caused by repeated pressure on an area or by using a joint too much. High-risk activities generally focus on repetitive movements, some examples of these may be gardening, painting, and scrubbing, as well as certain sports such as tennis, golf, or skiing. Bursitis can also be caused by sitting or standing the wrong way for a long time at work or home, or by not stretching enough before you exercise. Sudden injury can also sometimes cause bursitis.
Pain is the most common symptom of bursitis. This pain may build up slowly or be sudden and severe. Joints may also feel stiff, swollen, and red. Note: Seek immediate medical attention if you experience a fever (over 102), swelling, redness and warmth in the area, general illness or more than one area that hurts, or trouble moving the affected joint as these could be signs of an infection or another more serious problem
