Knee Bursitis – What You Need to Know

What Is Knee Bursitis?

Knee bursitis is an inflammatory condition that affects bursae, which are small fluid-filled sacs located around the joints. They play an important role in reducing friction and cushioning pressure points between your tendons and bones as well as skin and muscles. Bursitis can affect any body part, but the knee is more commonly affected. Swelling and pain would limit movement and mobility. Fortunately, there are many treatment options and home remedies to help improve the symptoms. [1]
