Beating Bursitis — Taking Care of Your Joint Cushions. All of us have joint pain at some point in our life. A common cause of joint pain is bursitis. Bursitis happens when a bursa in a joint becomes inflamed. A bursa is a small, fluid filled sac that acts as a cushion between bones and other moving parts, such as muscles, tendons, or skin. You have about 150 bursas in your body. They keep joints such as your shoulders, knees, and elbows working smoothly. But they can be hurt by sudden or repetitive forces, and flair up because of an injury. For example, if you have a foot injury, it can change the way you walk. Subtle changes can give rise to some inflammation in a bursa. Bursitis can also be caused by putting pressure on a joint for too long, such as kneeling or leaning on your elbows. Activities that require repetitive motions or place stress on your joints-such as carpentry, gardening etc. can sometimes trigger bursitis. Here are some wise choices to prevent Bursitis

• Cushion your joints when kneeling or putting pressure on your elbows

• Take frequent breaks from repetitive tasks

• Exercise regularly but begin new activities or exercise routines slowly

• Strengthen muscles around your joints

• Stop activities when you first feel pain

• Use two hands to hold heavy tools

• Practice good posture and position the body properly when going about daily activities
