Symptoms & Causes Of Bursitis

Bursitis affects the bursae, which are fluid-filled sacs that cushion the bones, tendons, and muscles. This painful condition occurs when the bursae become inflamed. Typically the bursae affected are those in joints performing repetitive motions. This can be caused by an injury or infection, or as the result of a pre-existing health condition. Frequent locations are the shoulder, hip, and elbow.

Symptoms typically include:

  • An achy or stiff joint
  • Joint pain increasing when the joint is moved or pressed on
  • A swollen or red joint
  • Painful to support body weight
