Bursitis is a serious condition that can cause chronic pain in joints and is caused either by repetitive, minor impact on an area of the body or from a sudden, more serious injury. The condition is most common in adults, especially those over the age of 40.

The bones, tendons, and muscles near joints are cushioned by small fluid-filled pads called bursae. When bursae become inflamed, Bursitis occurs. Overuse of joints often increases the risk of developing bursitis, as does age, as tendons are less able to tolerate stress and easier to tear.

The most common areas for bursitis are the elbow, hip, and shoulder, however, the knees and Achilles tendon can also be affected. To prevent Bursitis, caution should be taken when participating in certain activities that cause the joints to perform frequent repetitive motion. Gardening, raking, carpentry, shoveling, painting, scrubbing, tennis, golf, skiing, and throwing are all examples of “high risk” activities. Incorrect posture at work or home and poor stretching or conditioning before exercise can also lead to Bursitis. Bursitis can be prevented by slowly building up force and reputations and listening to the body, which means stopping when pain occurs.

Bursitis can be treated a few different ways, including rest, cold compression therapy and avoidance of pain-inducing activities. For those suffering from serious pain, physical therapy is an option that is often used and utilizes range-of-motion exercises and splinting to reduce pain and strengthen joints.
