The tissue covering the bursa inside the wall releases large amounts of fluid as a result of irritation caused by the inflammation. As a result of this, there would be a pain in movements due to the malfunction of the bursa. Bursitis occurs in different parts of the body, which include knee, hip, shoulder, elbow, etc. Bursitis can also be treated by surgery, medication, or injection.
