Causes And Symptoms Of Hip Bursitis
Written by Eunice Dickens   
When your body moves it will require a muscle tendon to move over a bone. This would mean that you would have immeasurable friction and pain if you did not have tiny, fluid filled sacks that are known as bursa. Bursa is scattered all over your body and look like small sandwich baggies that are filled with an oily fluid that doesn’t have any air. They are placed between the surfaces that rub together. The bursa means that you will be able to move easily. When you have bursitis it means that you have swelling and inflammation of the bursa.

Here are the symptoms of bursitis:

The number one bursitis symptom is joint pain and stiffness that is in areas that you move the most. The joint pain is very severe during any activity that uses the affected muscles the most. Than after you stop doing the activity you will have pain that will feel like a sore ache.

The causes of bursitis:

There are many people who have jobs that require them to do the same type of repetitive movements and they will eventually feel pain in the places where the tendons rub over the bone. When your muscle is used over and over again it will become coarse and this will lead to bursitis. This will then cause the bursa to become inflamed. When this happens it means that the inflammation will cause the bursa to lose its slickness and the movement of the muscle will become much harder. Instead of a soft and effortless glide of movement it will feel rough and gritty. The confined space that is between the muscles and the bursa will get smaller and the inflammation will cause friction any time you move.

These are the treatments of bursitis:

The most effective way to help with the pain of bursitis is an anti-inflammatory medication. You will also need to support and brace the tendons that have been affected by the bursitis. You will need to talk to your doctor about the best way to treat this condition so you don’t have to deal with the pain.

Bursitis prevention

The best way of preventing bursitis is to make sure that you stretch your muscles regularly. This will help to lengthen the bursa or bone connection. You will also need to make sure that you rest the bursa or bone connection while doing any strenuous activity because this will also help to prevent bursitis.

The most important thing you can do to help treat this condition is to research the condition and make sure you know all the causes and symptoms plus any ways that you can prevent it from happening. You need to make sure that you know about it so that you can take care of your body muscles so you don’t end up in intense pain. The more information you have the more aware you will about bursitis.

When you have this pain in your muscles you don’t want to ignore it and hope that it will go away. You need to get to the doctor as soon as you can so that you can get help with the pain. You will have to have medication to stop the inflammation from getting any worse. So don’t ignore it. Be smart and educate yourself on this condition so that you will be able to avoid it. Too many people have to deal with this on a daily basis because of their jobs; you don’t have to be one of them if you know what to do to stop this from happening to you. So learn all you can.
