The bursa ensures the smooth gliding of tendons, muscles and bones on a joint. It basically acts as a shifting layer for the muscles on the bone.

Careful with a premature osteoarthritis diagnosis

An inflammation of the bursa, for example on the knee, leads to severe pain. As medical specialists, it is our job to provide a comprehensive and profound diagnosis with the anamnesis methods at our disposal, such as a physical examination, consultations with the patient and imaging methods, to detect the pain syndrome. 

"Surgical removal of the bursa is the exception ."

Bursitis in the hip region (bursitis trochanterica) and in the shoulder (bursitis subacromialis) occur most frequently, says our specialist Dr. Mathias Schettle.
In both cases, he recommends targeted conservative therapy measures that result in fast pain relief and reduced inflammation.
