The Bursa is the sac that fills the gaps between the tissues such as bones, muscles, tendons and skin. This sac is filled with lubricating fluid that prevents the rubbing and friction of these parts. Bursitis refers to the inflammation of the bursa. It can also be caused due to irritation of the sac. This usually happens due to overuse, injury or poor placement of a bone or joint.
