Bursitis is inflammation of the bursa, fluid-filled sacs that act as cushions between bones and soft tissues. We will diagnose the cause of your bursitis and develop a treatment and rehabilitation plan that fits your lifestyle. Our goal is to eliminate your pain and help you prevent future injury.


We may recommend X-rays or MRI imaging, blood tests or an analysis of your bursa fluid to confirm your diagnosis. We may prescribe anti-inflammatory medication, physical therapy or steroid injections to ease your pain. You also may need to use a cane or crutches while you heal. In rare cases, the best treatment option could be minimally invasive arthroscopic surgery to remove your inflamed bursa.
