11 Symptoms of Bursitis

The human body is equipped with protective parts that help to prolong the longevity of the many joints in the body. One of the most important structures in every joint of the human body is a bursa. A bursa is a fluid-filled sac that protects the bones and joint space and over time, the bursa can become at risk for illnesses. One such issue with the bursa, especially in the knee and hip joints, is bursitis, or also known as inflammation of the bursa sac. When bursitis affects the body and joint space, there are a number of things the body can feel and undergo. Listed below are 11 of the most common symptoms that you may experience with bursitis.

1. Age

One of the most common symptoms of bursitis is older age. While being older in years is not a definite when it comes to bursitis, it does increase your risk of the condition. While there is not much you can do to reverse your age, there are some holistic things you can do throughout the years to help reduce your risk, even though age is creeping up on your joints. Your bursa sacs are all filled with synovial fluid, which is a membrane-rich, fluid-filled sac that tends to change in volume over the years. Staying hydrated is one of the best options to start with and as you get older this is especially true.
