What is a Knee Bursitis?
The knee has three bursa sacs that surround the joint. The bursa is a small gel-filled sac used to cushion and lubricate the soft tissue structures around the knee joint. Bursa are commonly inflamed as the result of tendonitis (jumper’s knee), arthritis or prolonged kneeling on the hard surfaces.

Causes of Knee Bursitis
- Frequent and sustained pressure on the knee (ie, kneeling for extended periods on hard surfaces)
- Forceful impact to your knee.
