Bursitis is a condition characterized by the inflammation or irritation of a bursa, which is a small, fluid-filled sac that cushions and lubricates areas where tendons, skin, and muscles glide over bones. The inflammation of the bursa is often due to repetitive motion, pressure, or injury to a specific joint. Common sites for bursitis include the shoulder, elbow, hip, and knee. Symptoms can include localized pain, swelling, tenderness, and limited movement in the affected joint.
