Knee Bursitis

Knee Bursitis

The bursa is a lubricating sack underneath the skin that allows for motion of the skin around joints and tendons. A common bursal irritation around the knee involves the bursa in front of the kneecap. This is seen in people who work on their knees or fall onto their knees. “Housemaid’s knee” or “preacher’s knee” is often seen associated with a lot of kneeling.

A bursa can be swollen and irritating and occasionally become infected. prepatellar-bursitis
