Bursae are fluid-filled sacs that surround joints, acting as shock absorbers and cushions for bones, muscles, and tendons. Bursitis develops when these sacs become inflamed, leading to significant pain and discomfort. This condition is most prevalent in the hips, shoulders, elbows, and knees.


There are a variety of symptoms associated with bursitis that can worsen over time if left untreated. Some of the most common include:

  • Stiffness in the affected joint
  • Inflammation and redness of the area
  • Intense, shooting pain upon exercising or strenuous movement
  • Decreased mobility and flexibility
  • Fever

When any of these symptoms begin to affect one’s ability to complete everyday tasks, it may be time to seek professional medical attention to learn about treatment options.


In most cases, bursitis is the result of repetitive movement or positions that create tension on or near the bursae of a joint. However, there are some risk factors that can make an individual more susceptible to experiencing bursitis, including age, occupation, medical conditions, and being overweight. Depending on the exact cause of bursitis, lifestyle changes may be suggested along with treatment in order to prevent future instances of the condition from occurring.


To determine the severity of bursitis, depending on the body region, spine or joint diagnostic imaging tests such as x-rays, an MRI, or a CT scan, may be performed. For patients with less severe cases, a minimally invasive approach to treatment will be recommended. Possible interventions may include therapy, medication, or bracing. In more severe cases of the condition, surgery may be needed in order to drain the inflamed bursa. Following a comprehensive exam and assessment, we will develop a treatment plan that is specific to your needs so that you can return to the activities you enjoy! Treatments for bursitis within the shoulders, elbows, hands<, hips, and knees may vary.
