Bursitis is a painful condition in which the small, fluid filled sacs (bursae) that surround joints become inflamed. It usually affects joints that are frequently in motion, such as the hips, shoulders, elbows and knees. The most common symptoms of bursitis include joint discomfort, stiffness, and swelling. Mild symptoms can sometimes be managed at home with rest and ice therapy, but be sure to seek bursitis treatment from a doctor if you experience:

  • Discomfort that lasts for more than two weeks
  • Pronounced swelling with rashes or bruises around the affected joint
  • Intense, shooting pain during physical exertion
  • Severe joint pain that prevents you from functioning normally

As a patient at ORA Orthopedics in the Quad Cities, you will receive well-rounded care from one of our friendly and experienced orthopedic specialists. A specialist will carefully evaluate your condition, listen to your concerns, and recommend helpful ways to reduce your bursitis pain as well as prevent future flare-ups. Depending on the severity of the bursitis, treatment options may include a combination of physical therapy, prescription medication, and corticosteroid injections. Minimally invasive surgery to drain swollen bursae may be recommended in advanced cases.
