Learn more about our orthopedic services and our Bursitis Treatment at Wake Orthopaedics.
If you love to stay active and play sports, bursitis may be a painful condition you’re familiar with. The term “bursitis” refers to when the bursa, which is a normal liquid sac around your tissues, becomes inflamed. The bursa generally helps reduce friction between muscles, tendons and bones –– so when it is aggravated, the simplest of tasks such as running or walking may be extremely painful.
Bursitis is generally more common in hips, elbows, shoulders and knees. A fairly prevalent sports injury, it is usually caused by poor posture or not stretching before physical activities, especially in adults who are over the age of 40.
When home remedies and management fails, the sports injury specialists at Wake Orthopaedic can help.
