PREPATELLAR – KNEE BURSITIS – REHAB


  • ORTHOINFO .
    – Bursae are small, jelly-like sacs containing a small amount of fluid, positioned b/n bones and soft tissues, acting as cushions to help reduce friction.
    – Prepatellar bursitis is inflammation in front of the kneecap (patella)
    – When the bursa becomes irritated and produces too much fluid it swells and puts pressure on adjacent parts of the knee.
    – It is often caused by pressure from constant kneeling or a direct blow to the front of knee
    – Nonsurgical treatment is usually effective as long as the bursa is simply inflamed and not infected
