Bursitis is a condition where you have inflammation of the “bursa”. The bursa is a fluid-filled layer of tissue we have in our bodies at different locations. It is found between the skin and a bony prominence. Some examples of this would be the hip where we have a trochanteric bursa, the shoulder where we have the subacromial bursa or the olecranon bursa over the elbow.
With the inflammation that occurs in bursitis, that tissue becomes thickened and inflamed. It produces pain with movement and can limit the activity and movement of the affected area.
