Healthy Geezer: Ultrasound can be used to treat bursitis

Wednesday, April 29, 2015 by FRED CICETTI in Social News

Q. Is bursitis age-related?

Yes. Bursitis occurs more often as we get older.

Repetitive motions are the worst things for people who tend to get bursitis. Other causes include joint trauma, rheumatoid arthritis, gout and infection.

Bursitis is inflammation of a bursa, which is a small sac filled with fluid. We each have about 160 of these bursae, which act as shock absorbers and grease for our joints. They are buffers between bones and overlapping muscles or between bones and tendons/skin. When bursae become inflamed, they can ache.
