Bursitis is a painful condition that can develop in your joint when you have too much fluid around the joint or if there is inflammation of the bursa sac.
The pain typically worsens with movement and use of the joint. With treatments such as rest, ice packs, over-the-counter medications, and physical therapy, many people find relief from their symptoms without surgery.
In some cases though, an injection into the affected area may be necessary to help reduce swelling and inflammation in order to promote healing.
Bursa injections are a type of shot that may be recommended by your doctor if you have knee pain due to bursitis. Bursitis is inflammation in the bursa, which is a small fluid-filled sac in and around your joints.
The most common cause of bursitis is chronic overuse with repetitive motion such as kneeling on hard surfaces for prolonged periods of time or running up and downstairs.
We can administer this injection to help reduce swelling and pain from the bursa sacs around your knees.
