Knee Bursitis – What You Need to Know


Symptoms and signs of knee bursitis can vary greatly, depending on the underlying cause and affected bursae. In most cases, the inflamed parts of the knee tend to become swollen, tender, and warm as you put pressure on them. In addition, the pain would occur with movement or even when you are at rest. A sudden blow to your knee would trigger the sensations to show up quickly. But most cases often result from irritation and friction of the bursae that happen in tasks that need lots of kneeling on hard surfaces. Therefore, symptoms often start gradually and get worse over time. [2]
