Bursitis

Bursitis

A bursa refers to a fluid filled sac that is situated between various tissues like muscles, bones or in joints. This lubricates the said region preventing wear and tear of the surrounding structures when they are in motion. This inflammation is called bursitis. It occurs when joints are injured or are used excessively like in carpentry, tennis, golf, painting and skiing. Certain joint diseases like gout and rheumatoid arthritis, and thyroid disorders can also cause bursitis. Pain, fever, swollen and red joints are the usual complaints.
