We all have fluid filled sacs known as bursa that cushion our joints. Bursitis occurs when they become inflamed.
Symptoms of knee bursitis are:
- A painful knee
- A swollen knee
- The skin around the knee may be sore and tender
Treatments for knee bursitis:
You can try taking a break and resting your knee as well as using ice and anti inflammatories to reduce inflammation and pain.
It is also possible to have a steroid injection to reduce the swelling.
If your knee bursitis is particularly bad and not responding to the above, then an orthopaedic surgeon can drain it for you
