Bursitis is characterized by inflammation of a bursa, a closed and fluid-filled sac that serves as a cushion and gliding surface, reducing friction between various tissues in the body. The major bursae (plural of bursa) are strategically positioned adjacent to tendons near significant joints, including the shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees.
The primary function of bursae is to facilitate smooth movement by minimizing friction between adjacent structures, such as muscles, tendons, and bones. When a bursa becomes inflamed, it leads to the condition known as bursitis. This inflammation can result from repetitive movements, overuse, trauma, or underlying medical conditions.
While bursitis can temporarily limit joint motion, it typically does not cause permanent deformities. The symptoms of bursitis often include localized pain, swelling, and tenderness near the affected joint. These symptoms may intensify with movement or pressure on the inflamed area.
Management of bursitis typically involves rest, anti-inflammatory medications, and, in some cases, physical therapy to reduce inflammation and promote optimal joint function. Lifestyle modifications and avoiding activities that aggravate the condition are also recommended for a full and speedy recovery.
It’s important to note that bursitis is usually a temporary condition, and with appropriate care, most individuals experience relief from symptoms and a return to normal joint function. Seeking prompt medical attention and following recommended treatment plans are key to managing bursitis effectively.
