Bursitis Pain

Bursitis is a painful condition that affects the small, fluid-filled sacs that cushion the bones, tendons, and muscles near your joints. The most common locations for bursitis are in the shoulder, elbow, knee, and hip. Tennis elbow and golfers' elbow are actually types of bursitis.

Symptoms of Bursitis

Each person experiences different symptoms, but the most common are localized pain and swelling.

Causes of Bursitis

Bursitis occurs when bursae become inflamed. Commonly this inflammation occurs with injury or repetition and overuse, but sometimes infection may cause it. Bursitis can be associated with arthritis, gout, tendonitis, diabetes, and thyroid disease.

Diagnosing Bursitis

Bursitis is diagnosed with a physical exam and tests such as x-rays and MRIs. Fluid may be taken from the ares to be sure the problem isn't an infection.
