What Is Bursitis?

Published on August 31, 2018

The structure of our joints is more complex than you may think. There are several structural elements of the joint that can cause chronic pain once they become damaged. One of the most common causes of chronic joint pain is bursitis.

The joints of the body contain small sacks that are filled with fluid. These sacks are known as bursae. They serve as a kind of cushion for the muscles, bones, and tendons that comprise the joint.

Bursitis is a condition that occurs when the bursae become inflamed. Bursitis can cause a joint to become painful, inflamed, and stiff. The most common joints where bursitis can occur include the shoulders, knees, and hips.
