What is Bursitis?

Bursitis occurs most often at joints that perform frequent repetitive motion. Bursitis is an inflammation of the soft sac (bursa) between your joints. These bursae are there to give cushioning during movement to prevent wear and tear that may lead to future injury. Bursae also serve as protection to the soft tissues such as ligaments, tendons and muscles. Symptoms include pain, swelling and stiffness. Common areas include the knees, shoulders, elbows and hips.

    Ancillary Measures

    Bursitis isn’t always preventable, but making some basic lifestyle changes can reduce your risk of developing bursitis and prevent flare-ups, such as:

    Avoid putting extra stress on your joints by maintaining a healthy weight.

    Strengthen the muscles supporting your joints with gentle exercise.

    When performing repetitive tasks, take frequent breaks.

    Always warm up before starting strenuous activities.

    Practice good posture when sitting and standing especially taking note of having both feet flat on the floor when rising from a seated position.

    Do not overdo it, and stop an activity if you experience pain.

    Just note, that the above remedy lists are just suggestions that may come up for bursitis. There are other remedies for bursitis, and most importantly, you need to match your individual presentation of the bursa inflammation.
