Bursa are located throughout the body – mostly where muscles and tendons glide over bones – to help decrease friction between surfaces as they move in different directions.

When bursa become inflamed and loses the ability to glide, it is called bursitis. Bursa becomes irritated, rough, and swollen, causing increased friction within an already confined space.

Bursitis may be caused by traumatic injury, repetitive movement, excessive or prolonged pressure, or inflammatory illnesses such as rheumatoid arthritis.
