What is Knee Bursitis?

Description of the disease

Knee bursitis is inflammation of the mucous membrane of the knee joint, accompanied by the formation of exudate in the bursa (a cavity filled with synovial fluid).


  • Traumatic bursitis (occurs as a result of injury)
  • Infectious bursitis (occurs as a result of infection)
  • Aseptic bursitis (occurs without infection penetration)


  • Swelling and redness in the knee area
  • Pain when moving and pressing on the knee
  • Sensation of warmth in the knee joint area


The most common causes of knee bursitis are trauma, overuse, and infection.


Diagnosis of knee bursitis includes examination by a doctor, X-ray and ultrasound.


Treatment may include taking anti-inflammatory drugs, physiotherapy, bursa puncture, and surgical intervention in the case of infectious bursitis.


To prevent knee bursitis, it is recommended to avoid overuse, correctly distribute the load on the knees, and wear protective equipment during sports activities.


Knee bursitis treatment is carried out by an orthopedic surgeon, traumatologist.
