What is Shoulder Bursitis?
A bursa is a tiny fluid-filled sac that functions as a gliding surface to reduce friction between tissues of the body. When injury or inflammation of a bursa around the shoulder joint occurs, shoulder bursitis is present.

Self-Diagnose can bring more harm than treating it. It is good to know more about the injury but definitely not to the point of self-treatment.
