What Patients Need to Know about the Knee Pain!

Bursitis

Bursae are small sacs located between bones in the knees. When these areas become inflamed, you will start to feel pain in your knee. However, this type of inflammation isn’t always painful. In fact, it can sometimes go away without any treatment at all. You can feel discomfort instead of actual pain, so the symptoms vary depending on your pain threshold.

Bursitis usually happens when you perform repetitive work with your legs, as in walking or running a marathon or doing many repetitions at the gym with a very heavy load. It usually responds very well to heat and massage therapy, but sometimes it requires medical attention to get real improvements.
