Treat Bursitis Naturally
What Causes Bursitis?
Bursitis is usually caused by repeated pressure on an area or by using a joint too much. High-risk activities generally focus on repetitive movements, some examples of these may be gardening, painting, and scrubbing, as well as certain sports such as tennis, golf, or skiing. Bursitis can also be caused by sitting or standing the wrong way for a long time at work or home, or by not stretching enough before you exercise. Sudden injury can also sometimes cause bursitis.
What is Bursitis?
Bursitis is the inflammation or irritation within a bursa sac. Bursa sacs occur all over the body and are filled with fluid that helps ease rubbing and friction between tissues such as bone, muscle, tendons, and skin. It most commonly occurs in adults over the age of 40 and affects major joints like the shoulders, elbows, hips, and knees.
