Bursitis is a painful condition that affects the bursae we have in our bodies. Bursae are fluid-filled sacs that cushion the bones, tendons and muscles near your joints. When these cushions become overworked, they can swell, causing painful joint inflammation—which can be and acute injury (short-term) or chronic or serious injuries (long-term), depending on the amount of damage done to the bursae.
Bursitis usually occurs near joints that perform repetitive motion and result in what is commonly known as a repetitive strain injury. Examples include:
- Throwing or lifting something over your head repeatedly
- Leaning on your elbows for long periods
- Kneeling for tasks such as laying carpet and tiles or scrubbing floors.
You may also suffer bursitis from injury or trauma to the affected area, inflammatory arthritis such as rheumatoid arthritis, gout and infection. When you suffer from bursitis it can be debilitating and have a serious impact on your quality of life.
I would highly recommend Smith’s Lawyers. The work they put into my case was exceptional, even with such a busy working life and at most times being unreachable. They went above and beyond to ensure the best possible outcome. I am very pleased with their work and the result.
"I highly recommend Smith’s Lawyers! They are very easy to deal with, all staff from the reception ladies through to the lawyers are friendly and action emails and phone messages promptly. I couldn’t have asked more from any of the team. I’ll certainly use Smith’s again in the future if I need to"
"Greg, Luke and the team at Smiths Lawyers were absolutely amazing in the handling of my cases from day one they were so proactive right through to finalisation of my claim. It’s true what they say no win no fee ( A broad statement) we won my claim and the cost associated with the claim was as such after deductions."
"People cringe at the thought of dealing with lawyers but my experience so far has been an absolute pleasure."
