How bursitis can affect your health?
Bursitis is painful swelling of a small fluid-filled sac called a bursa. These sac pads where bones rub against muscles, tendons or skin. By filling in these areas, the bursa (plural bursa) reduces friction, friction, and inflammation. There are bursae all over the body, but bursitis most often occurs around the joint.
You may notice the following around the muscles, bones, especially the joints:
- Pain, especially during exercise.
- The range of motion is limited.
- If there is infection, rash, warmth, fever, chills.
Bursitis usually heals naturally. Preventive measures such as rest, freezing, and taking painkillers can help relieve discomfort. If conservative measures don’t work, you may need to:
Medication. If the inflammation of the bursa is caused by an infection, your doctor may prescribe antibiotics.
Therapy. Physical therapy and exercise can strengthen the affected muscles to relieve pain and prevent recurrence.
Injection. Corticosteroids injected into the bursa can relieve pain and inflammation in the shoulders and lower back. This treatment usually works quickly and usually only requires one injection.
Assistive equipment. Temporary use of a wand or other device can relieve pressure on the affected area.
Operation. Although surgical removal of the inflamed bursa is required, surgical removal of the affected bursa is rarely necessary.
Bursitis is inflammation or irritation of a bursa sac. You have these sacs all over your body. They’re filled with fluid that eases rubbing and friction between tissues like bones, muscles, tendons, and skin. Bursitis is common around major joints like your shoulder, elbow, hip, or knee.
