Any movement of the bones, ligaments and tendons to each other in the joints accompanied by friction. However, this is mitigated by the friction of a liquid which is filled with periarticular bursa. Bursitis – inflammation of the bursa – usually occurs when an excessive load on the joints or the joint for a long time under tension or pressure.
The causes of bursitis joints
Usually arthritis due to its improper or excessive “use.” Bursitis can also occur due to trauma or periarticular bags surrounding tendons. The cause of bursitis can become repetitive physical stress, such as beating of the game of golf. The disease, known as “lap maid” or “water in the knee” – is an inflammation of the bursa from kneeling during cleaning. Other possible causes – arthritis and gout – causes inflammation of the joints and tendons throughout the body, respectively, may involve bursa. Such damage may be associated with reduced joint mobility, redness, swelling and occasionally fever in the joint.
Bursitis occurs most often in the shoulder joint, as it has the largest amount of movement of all major joints of the human body. Pain is felt on the outside of the shoulder. A little less affected elbow, hip, knee, ankle and wrist.
The main complication of bursitis – infection. Since the bursa is often found just under the skin, the infection can be caused by various bacteria that penetrate through the damaged or diseased skin over the joint. Such cases require antibiotics.
Symptoms of bursitis
– Pain, inflammation and swelling in the joints, especially in tension or kneading during training exercises
– Limited range of motion, accompanied by a sharp pain or without
– Redness of the skin and a local temperature rise over the area of the joint.
What you can do
