Definition of Bursitis:

The bursa is a fluid-filled pad that allows your muscles to easily slide over other muscles and bones.  Bursitis occurs when this pad becomes inflamed.  It usually occurs when you overuse or injure a specific joint, but it can also be caused by a bacterial infection.  Symptoms include pain and inflammation around joints such as the elbow, hip, shoulder, big toe, ankle or knee.
