Bursitis is a painful inflammation of one or more of the bursae closed sacs that contain small amounts of synovial fluid and facilitate the motion of muscles and tendons over bony prominence. Bursitis may be septic, calcific, acute, or chronic. Acute and chronic bursitis follows recurring trauma that stresses or pressures a joint, or inflammatory joint disease, such as; gout. Septic bursitis follows wound infection or bacterial invasion of skin over the bursa. Symptoms: Inflammation of affected site
Limited mobility or movement Treatment:
  • Treatment to relieve pain includes: Resting and immobilization of the affected area. Systemic analgesics analgesics Application of cold and heat Ultrasound Doctor may prescribed an injection of an anesthetic and corticosteroids to reduce inflammation Steroid therapy R.O.M. execercise/Physical therapy Anti-inflammatory medication

Long term control of chronic bursitis may required changes in life-style to prevent recurring joint irritation. Supplementary treatment includes fluid removal by aspiration.

The big toe or Bunion joint is also a favorite spot to find bursitis in the foot. Bursitis is confused with Gout and infection by those who don't deal with them on a daily basis. The most common complaint from the patient is upon rising in the morning, or after about 20 minutes or resting, then upon rising, there is great pain in the area of the bursa. This is due to the fact that the fluid in the sac has hardened up and can not flow as easy as it did, that is what is

What is Bursitis, and how can I treat it?
William Shiel, M.D., F.A.C.P.
Dr. Shiel is currently practicing in the field of rheumatology at the Arthritis Center of Southern Orange County, California and is an Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine at University of California, Irvine. Dr. Shiel is also the Chief Editor at Bursitis is inflammation of a bursa. A bursa is a tiny fluid-filled sac that functions as a gliding surface to reduce friction between tissues of the body. The major bursae are located adjacent to the tendons near the large joints, such as the shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees.
How does a bursa become inflamed?
A bursa can become inflamed from injury, infection, or underlying rheumatic condition. Examples include injury as subtle as lifting a bag of groceries into the car to inflame the shoulder bursa (shoulder bursitis), infection of the bursa in front of the knee from a knee scraping on asphalt (septic prepatellar bursitis), and inflammation of the elbow bursa from gout crystals (gouty olecranon bursitis).
How is bursitis treated?

Bursitis has some funny nicknames. Its called Housemaids Knee, Clergymans Knee, and Bakers Cyst, among others. But anyone whos experienced the pain of bursitis knows that its no laughing matter.
The bursa is a fluid-filled sac that helps protect muscle, ligaments, tendons, or skin that rubs across bone. There are bursae throughout our bodies, but the ones where inflammation most commonly occurs are at the shoulder, elbow, knee, and heel.
The painful inflammation of a bursa is called bursitis. Its caused by bumping or bruising, repeated pressure, or overuse. It can develop after an activity you re not used to doing or after increasing a familiar activity. If you havent been in the garden, and you start hoeing several rows. That one exposure may give you acute bursitis," says Jack Harvey. M.D., chief of sports medicine at the Orthopaedic Center of the Rockies in Fort Collins, Colorado. "Conversely. swimmers who swim 5.000 yards a day may do fine until they up their workout to 7,500 yards a day."
Sometimes, bursitis can flare up without a clue as to its cause. All you know is, it hurts. "It can occur spontaneously with no real clear precipitating event, or doing an activity that youve done a million times," says Joseph P. lannotti, M.D., Ph.D., assistant professor of orthopedic surgery and chief of Shoulder Service at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia.

About Arthritis
Over 100 different disorders can be classified as arthritis. Some can affect one or more parts of a joint whereas others have their most significant effects on other parts of the body. More detailed information on these disorders is available at the Arthritis Foundation Web site. Listed here are some of the most common arthritic conditions: If you think that you or someone you know may have a rheumatic condition, see a doctor. Only a doctor can provide a diagnosis and prescribe treatments that may help relieve symptoms. Ankylosing spondylitis
This condition primarily affects the spine, but it may also cause arthritis in the hips, shoulders, and knees. The tendons and ligaments around the bones and joints in the spine become inflamed. Symptoms include pain and stiffness, especially in the lower back. Ankylosing spondylitis tends to develop during late adolescence or early adulthood. The Spondylitis Association of America is a good source for more information on this condition.

Bursitis and Tendonitis Joints are sites of motion between two bones, each of which is lined with a smooth, friction free surface called articular cartilage. The alignment and stability of the joint are maintained by supportive structures called ligaments and tendons, and cushioning of the joints is provided by fluid filled sacs called bursae. Ligaments are cord like structures that run from bone to bone, while tendons run from muscle to bone. Inflammation of either structure at the site of attachment to the bone is known as enthesopathy, while inflammation of the bursae is known as bursitis. Inflammation of ligaments, tendons, and bursae can occur as a result of trauma to the joint or as result of overuse such as in athletic injury. Inflammation of the structures around a joint can also occur as one the first signs of a systemic inflammatory arthritis. In sero-negative arthritis (psoriatic arthritis, colitic arthritis, Reiter's syndrome) enthesopathy is often the first and most significant manifestation of the disease and is best treated by a rheumatologist with systemic anti-inflammatory medications. Our physicians can quickly determine if inflammation of a ligament, tendon, or bursae represents a mechanical problem or an inflammatory problem. If the problem is mechanical we can provide treatment by a staff orthopedist with specialization in sports medicine and can provide access to state of the art physical therapy in a variety of convenient locations. If the problem is systemic inflammatory arthritis, our rheumatologists can provide treatment with a wide variety of anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive medications as well as access to novel treatments, which are not yet approved for general use, through our ambulatory clinical research center (ACRS). Our rheumatologists, orthopedists, and physiatrists work together to insure an integrated plan of care

Symptoms Treatment What is Trochanteric Bursitis?
Trochanteric bursitis is a condition affecting the side or lateral aspect of the hip. Although trochanteric bursitis usually affects middle-aged or elderly persons, women more often than men, it can develop in younger people also.  As in other forms of bursitis, there is swelling in the bursa causing pain and inflammation. There are hundreds of bursae (plural for bursa) in the human body, especially in the joints of the shoulder, hip, knee, and ankle.  These small sacs of fluid cushion the places where tendons, ligaments, and muscles move over bones.  They help prevent or decrease friction between surfaces that move in opposite directions.  When bursae become inflamed, there is pain whenever the affected part of the body is used. Disorders of the hip are very disruptive, as they affect the joint in the body that gives us mobility while walking and stability while sitting or bending at the waist.  They can also cause pain while lying on the affected side of the body.

Bursitis Bursitis is caused by an inflammation of a bursa. The bursae are small fluid filled sacs that are located between tendons and the bone all over the human body. They aid in muscular movement by cushioning against friction between your bones and other tissues. An inflamed bursa causes pain, tenderness to the touch of the affected body part, and limits mobility. There may occur redness and swelling in the area. Bursitis can be caused by injury, chronic overuse, reactions to certain foods, airborn allergies , repetitive motion (see carpal tunnel syndrome ), and tense muscles. Frequently, it is the bursae in the hip and shoulder joints that are affected. Bursitis affecting the arm is often called "tennis elbow" or "frozen shoulder." Work related bursitis happens very often, and maybe called any of the following names: "housemaid's knee" , "policeman's heel" , "beat knee" , "beat shoulder". One of the most common foot problems, the bunion, is really another form of bursitis caused by friction; a tight fitting shoe causes a sac on the joint of the big toe to become inflamed. Bursitis can affect anyone, at any age. ... more Nutrient / Supplement Importance

Table of Contents Conditions Bursitis Signs and Symptoms What Causes It? What to Expect at Your Provider's Office Treatment Options ... Supporting Research Bursitis is an inflammation of a bursa, a small structure inside every joint that helps to lubricate and cushion it. Usually bursitis occurs in the larger joints, such as the shoulder, hip, knee, or elbow. It can happen once or can recur over time. Without seeing your health care provider, you usually can't easily tell the difference between bursitis and pain caused by a strain or arthritis. Signs and Symptoms
  • Pain in the joint that gets worse when you move the joint (the pain may come all at once or develop gradually over time) Swelling Redness Fever and warm joint area (if an infection is present)
What Causes It? Typically the bursa becomes irritated or injured when the area is overused with repetitive motion or strenuous activity. It may also be caused by a bacterial infection. Certain other medical conditions, such as gout or rheumatoid arthritis, can also cause bursitis. What to Expect at Your Provider's Office Your health care provider will ask you to identify exactly where the joint hurts and feel the joint for swelling or particular areas of tenderness. Your health care provider may remove some fluid from the bursa with a small needle to check for signs of infection. You may also be given a blood test to check for other medical conditions.

    About bursitis and tendinitis
    Figure 1 - Soft tissue rheumatic syndromes affect the structures around the joints (bone, muscle, bursa, and tendon)
    Basics of bursitis and tendinitis
    Bursitis and tendinitis are conditions that are also known as soft tissue rheumatic syndromes. A syndrome is a group of signs and symptoms that occur together and indicate a particular problem. This type of syndrome produces pain, swelling, or inflammation in the tissues and structures around a joint, such as the tendons, ligaments, bursae, and muscles (see figure 1).
    Immediate medical attention
    If fever, chills, persistent redness, or swelling occur in a person with a soft tissue rheumatic syndrome, the person should see a doctor immediately to rule out infection.
    Facts and myths
    Because the structures affected by soft tissue rheumatic syndromes are near joints, pain in these areas may be mistaken for arthritis. The difference is that arthritis means inflammation in the joint itself, not in the structures around the joint.

Bursitis (bur-SIGH-tis) is swelling and irritation of a bursaone of the fluid-filled sacs that act as shock absorbers between the tendons and bones. The joints most likely to be affected are the knees, hips, shoulders, and elbows. With treatment, symptoms disappear in 7 to 14 days.
Injury and overuse of the joint are the most common causes. The problem can also stem from infection, arthritis, or gout. Sometimes the cause is unknown.
Typically, you'll suffer pain, swelling, tenderness, and loss of movement in the affected joint. These symptoms are sometimes accompanied by fever.
Your doctor may prescribe medication. Use it as directed and follow the guidelines listed below.
  • Apply ice to the injury for 10 to 20 minutes each hour for the first 1 to 2 days. Put the ice in a plastic bag and place a towel between the bag of ice and your skin.

Description Causes and symptoms Diagnosis ... Resources Definition Bursitis is the painful inflammation of the bursa, a padlike sac found in areas subject to friction. Bursae cushion the movement between the bones, tendons and muscles near the joints. Bursitis is most often caused by repetitive movement and is known by several common names including weaver's bottom, clergyman's knee, and miner's elbow, depending on the affected individual's occupation and area of injury. Description There are over 150 bursae in the human body. Usually bursae are present from birth, but they may form in response to repeated pressure. Each sac contains a small amount of synovial fluid, a clear liquid that acts as a lubricant. Inflammation causes pain on movement. The most common site for bursitis to occur is the shoulder (subdeltoid), but it also is seen in the elbows (olecranon), hips (trochanteric), knees, heels (Achilles), and toes. The affected area may be referred to as "frozen," because movement is so limited. In the knee there are four bursae, and all can become inflamed with overuse. Causes and symptoms The most common cause of bursitis is repeated physical activity, but it can flare up for no known reason. It can also be caused by trauma, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, and acute or chronic infection.

Signs, symptoms and indicators
Conditions that suggest it Contributing risk factors Other conditions that may be present ... Recommendations This condition occurs when bursa (sacs of fluid that cushion movement between the bones, tendons and muscles at your joints) become painfully inflamed. Usually caused by repetitive movement or prolonged excessive pressure, other causes include acute or chronic infection (notably staphylococcal) or tuberculosis . It can also occur alongside other common joint problems such as arthritis or gout The most common area affected is the shoulder but it can also occur at the knees ("Housemaid's Knee"), the buttocks ("Weaver's Bottom" - caused by sitting on hard surfaces for extended periods), elbows ("Miner's Elbow" - today caused by more modern activities such as vacuuming), hips, heels and even at the base of the big toe.
Removing pressure from and/or immobilizing the affected joint can help significantly and with treatment it can be made to disappear within a couple of weeks.
The chances of it recurring are minimized by strengthening your muscles (strong muscles protect joints) through appropriate exercise once the pain and inflammation is gone; taking more breaks during repetitive activities; and cushioning joints to avoid extended direct contact with hard surfaces.

79. :: Bursitis And Tendinitis
bursitis AND TENDINITIS WHAT IS IT? bursitis affects a bursa, one of many smallfluidfilled sacs that cushion muscles, bones, and tendons when you move.

Every year more than 12 million Americans suffer from bursitis and tendinitis, two common injuries to soft tissues near the joints. Bursitis affects a bursa, one of many small fluid-filled sacs that cushion muscles, bones, and tendons when you move. Tendinitis affects the tendons, hardworking bands of tissue that connect muscles to bones. If you injure a joint or use it too much, a nearby bursa or tendon may swell. The result: pain-sometimes fiery and throbbing, sometimes sharp and aching. If you move the joint, the pain often feels worse. You're more likely to get bursitis or tendinitis if you do a lot of repeated motions, such as hammering, typing, or assembly line work. You're also at greater risk if you run regularly or play certain sports, such as tennis. In fact, tendinitis in the outer elbow is nicknamed "tennis elbow." These injuries most often heal with one to two weeks of rest. But they can get worse if you don't let the injured area recover. Tendinitis and bursitis can become chronic if untreated. That means the symptoms come and go, and may last a lifetime. You can do a lot to prevent tendinitis and bursitis. Easing strain on your bursae and tendons, exercising safely, stretching regularly, and warming up before playing sports all help. If you already have tendinitis or bursitis, you can take steps to ease the pain and reduce the swelling.

Causes, Incidence, and Risk Factors
Bursae are fluid-filled cavities located at tissue sites where tendons or muscles pass over bony prominences near joints. Their function is to aid in movement and reduce friction between moving parts. Bursitis can be caused by chronic overuse, trauma, rheumatoid arthritis gout , or infection. Sometimes the cause cannot be determined. Bursitis commonly occurs in the shoulder, knee (washmaid's knee), elbow, and hip. Other areas that may be affected include the Achilles tendon and the foot. Chronic inflammation can occur with repeated injuries or attacks of bursitis.
