Do you suffer from bursitis pain? Bursitis is a painful condition that affects the joints. Bursae are
fluid-filled sacs that act as a cushion between bones, tendons, joints and muscles. When these
sacs become inflamed it is called bursitis. Bursitis can result from direct impact to the bursa,
particularly located superficially (eg: elbow, knee), repeated pressure (eg: kneeling) and poor
biomechanics, when movement causes abnormal load on the joint and bursa.
The areas where bursitis most commonly occurs are the:
Elbows (tennis/golfers elbow)
The best option is to be assessed by our Physiotherapist who can assess movement, posture, soft tissue strength and biomechanics to provide you with a detailed treatment plan.
