The Treatment of Bursitis and Differential Diagnosis

Sai Krishna Reddy*

Bursitis is a condition that causes inflammation in the bursae which are small sacs filled with fluid that cushion and lubricate the joints. Bursae are located between tendons, muscles, and bones, and are present throughout the body. Bursitis is usually caused by repetitive motions, overuse, or direct trauma to the bursae, which leads to irritation and inflammation. It can affect any joint in the body, but most commonly occurs in the shoulder, elbow, hip, or knee. The symptoms of bursitis can range from mild discomfort to severe pain and limited range of motion. The treatment of bursitis involves managing the pain and inflammation, as well as improving joint function. This paper will discuss the differential diagnosis of bursitis, the causes, symptoms, and treatment options available.
