Bursitis is a medical condition in which the bursae, which are the sacs of synovial fluid that are located at places in which the muscles or tendons move across the bones, become inflamed. This can cause intense pain in the joints and can make movements which incorporate the affected joint difficult. Two of the most common causes of bursitis are repetitive motion and extreme pressure. Elbows and knees tend to be the most susceptible.
If you have developed bursitis from repetitive motion performed on the job, you are likely entitled to receive workers’ compensation benefits.
