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. It is a relatively common condition, but many people treat it at home and do not see a doctor, so it is hard to know how common it is. There are over bursae in the human body.

They cushion and lubricate points between the bones, tendons, and muscles near the joints. The bursae are lined with synovial cells.

Synovial cells produce a lubricant that reduces friction between tissues. This cushioning and lubrication allows our joints to move easily. When a person has bursitis, or inflammation of the bursa, movement or pressure is painful. Overuse, injury, and sometimes an infection from gout or rheumatoid arthritis may cause bursitis.

Tennis elbow is one type of bursitis. Any bursa can become affected, but bursitis is more likely in certain places. People with bursitis will feel pain at the site of inflammation. Most cases of bursitis cases can be treated at home, with the help of a pharmacist and some self-care techniques. The doctor may inject steroids into the affected area. Steroids block a body chemical called prostaglandin. Prostaglandin causes inflammation. If a fluid test confirms a bacterial infection, the doctor will probably prescribe antibiotics.

These will be administered orally, for example as tablets, or intravenously, in more severe cases. If the bursitis is caused by an infection, it is called septic bursitis. A patient with septic bursitis may have the following additional symptoms:.

Many people treat bursitis at home, but if symptoms are more severe, they should seek medical help. Bursitis can result from an injury, an infection, or a pre-existing condition in which crystals can form in the bursa. An injury can irritate the tissue inside the bursa and cause inflammation. Doctors say that bursitis caused by an injury usually takes time to develop.

The joints, tendons, or muscles that are near the bursa may have been overused. Most commonly, injury is caused by repetitive movements. Infection that causes bursitis tends to be in bursae that are nearer the surface of the skin, such as those near the elbow.

A cut on the skin is an opportunity for the bacteria to get in. Most healthy people are not affected by bacteria entering through the skin, but people with a weakened immune system are more at risk.

People with certain health conditions are more likely to have crystals form inside the bursa. The crystals irritate the bursa and make it swell. Conditions that may cause this include gout, rheumatoid arthritis, and scleroderma. To diagnose bursitis, a doctor will examine the affected area and ask the patient about their recent activities. If the patient has a high temperature, the physician may take a small sample of fluid from a bursa near the affected body part.

The sample will be tested for bacteria, and perhaps also crystals. If treatment is not effective, the doctor may carry out further tests to eliminate the possibility of a more serious condition.

Radiohumeral Bursitis; Is It Traumatic? Analysis and Report of 314 Cases

Elbow olecranon bursitis, commonly known as "baker's elbow," "student's elbow," or "Popeye elbow," involves swelling at the tip of the elbow, on the back of the arm. The condition can be painless, or it can be painful at rest and when leaned on, as when writing with the arm pressing on a table. Elbow bursitis can have many causes, but the most common is trauma, whether a direct hit, or smaller bumps or pressure applied over time. Elbow bursitis is commonly seen in students or office workers who lean their elbows on hard desks or armrests for long periods of time; however, its occurrence is not related to any particular age or ethnic group. The condition can also be caused by infection or autoimmune conditions. Sometimes, however, a specific cause cannot be determined. Physical therapists treat individuals with elbow bursitis to reduce their pain, swelling, stiffness, and any associated weakness in the elbow or upper extremity.
