Bursitis

Overview

Bursitis is inflammation of a bursa. A bursa is a fluid-filled sac that cushions and reduces friction between tissues of the body. The major bursae (plural of bursa) are located next to the tendons near large joints.

Symptoms

The following are the most common symptoms of bursitis: pain, localized tenderness, limited motion, and swelling and redness if the inflamed bursa is close to the surface of the skin. Chronic bursitis may involve repeated attacks of pain, swelling and tenderness.

Risk factors

The most common causes of bursitis are injury or overuse. Infection may also cause it. Anyone can develop bursitis but it becomes more common with aging, occupations or hobbies involving repetitive motion, and other medical conditions including rheumatoid arthritis, gout, diabetes and obesity.

Diagnosis

In addition to a complete medical history and physical exam, diagnostic tests for bursitis may include: X-rays, a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) test, ultrasound, aspiration (fluid is removed from the bursa and tested) along with blood tests.

Treatment

The treatment of any bursitis depends on whether or not it involves infection. For aseptic bursitis, treatments many include R.I.C.E. (rest, ice, compression and elevation), pain medicines, steroid injections and splints or braces to limit movement.

Complications

Severe or long-lasting bursitis of the shoulder can lead to reduced movement or use of the joint and result in muscle atrophy. Changes in the shape of the bursa, such as thickening or enlarging, can cause chronic inflammation in surrounding tissues.
