Bursitis is a painful and sometimes debilitating condition that many people experience every year. Bursitis occurs when a bursa, or a small sac containing fluid, becomes severely inflamed. The fluid sacs act as cushions for any tendons, muscles, and bones that are near the joints. Bursas can become inflamed through injuries, overuse, and even severe infections.
As we age, our bodies go through countless changes, and the spine is no exception. Spinal stenosis occurs when the spaces between the vertebrae begin to narrow, and it is a common affliction of individuals over the age of 50. When this condition occurs in the neck, it is called cervical stenosis. Often caused by the daily wear and tear of aging or osteoarthritis, narrowed spaces in the spine causes pinched nerves.
