Bursitis is a pain you can't ignore. If you're a tennis buff, golfer or your job requires repetitive motion, it's even more challenging. Spectrum Health has the region’s most advanced rehabilitation program with the latest treatments and therapies.

Bursitis is inflammation of a bursa: a fluid-filled sac that acts as a cushion between many muscles, tendons and bones. Symptoms are pain and swelling of the affected area. Treatments include medications, fluid aspiration and surgery to relieve pressure. Left untreated, this condition will persist and result in long-term limitations.
