Bursitis

BY: Kari Zollman

Bursitis is most often caused by repetitive, minor impact on the area, or from a sudden, more serious injury. Age also plays a role. As tendons age they are able to tolerate stress less, are less elastic, and are easier to tear. Overuse or injury to the joint at work or play can also increase a person's risk of bursitis. Incorrect posture

Pain, swelling, warmth, tenderness, and redness in the overlying area of the knee. Increased pain when kneeling and can cause stiffness and pain with walking. Severe loss of motion
