The Difference Between Bursitis and Tendonitis

When it comes to musculoskeletal conditions affecting joints, two common terms often come up - bursitis and tendonitis. Although they may sound similar, these two conditions have distinct differences.

Bursitis refers to the inflammation of the bursae, which are small fluid-filled sacs that act as cushions between bones, tendons, and muscles. On the other hand, tendonitis refers to the inflammation of the tendons, which are thick fibrous cords that attach muscles to bones.

While bursitis primarily affects the bursae, tendonitis specifically targets the tendons. However, it's important to note that these conditions can often occur together, leading to symptoms such as pain, swelling, and limited mobility.

Symptoms of Bursitis and Tendonitis

The symptoms of bursitis and tendonitis can vary depending on the affected area. In the case of hand bursitis, common symptoms include:

  • Pain and tenderness around the affected joint
  • Swelling and redness
  • Reduced range of motion
  • Difficulty performing daily activities

For many individuals, these symptoms can significantly impact their quality of life, making it essential to seek proper diagnosis and treatment.

Treatment Options for Bursitis and Tendonitis

Timely and appropriate treatment is crucial for managing bursitis and tendonitis effectively. Depending on the severity of the condition, treatments may vary. Here are some common approaches:

Conservative Treatments

Conservative treatments for bursitis and tendonitis often involve:

  • Rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE) therapy to reduce inflammation
  • Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to alleviate pain and swelling
  • Physical therapy exercises to strengthen the muscles and improve joint function
  • Supportive devices like braces or splints to provide stability
