Bursae are sacs that are filled with fluid; these sacs are found all over the body. They provide the necessary cushioning and lubrication that muscles, bones, and tendons need in areas where they move across each other. Bursitis is a painful condition where the bursae are inflamed or damaged, thus causing pain. In order to ease the pain of bursitis and to prevent it altogether, there are several steps you can take.
