Bursitis

Bursae are small sacs of synovial fluid which can be found where tendons attach to bone throughout the body. When these bursae become inflamed they can cause extreme pain in the affected area i.e. Bursitis.

Common areas that are affected by Bursitis are:
  • Elbows
  • Shoulders
  • Knees
  • Heel (Achilles Tendon)
Causes of Bursitis:
  • Excessive pressure on an area
  • Repetitive movement
  • Traumatic injury
  • A serious fall or knock

Bursitis causes pain when attempting movement and can lead to serious distress for the sufferer.
