What are the risk factors of bursitis?
Requested by Age2B visitor
by AGE2B

Anyone can develop bursitis, but certain factors can increase the risk:

  • Age. Bursitis becomes more common with aging.
  • Occupations or hobbies. If your work or hobby requires repetitive motion or pressure on particular bursae, the risk of developing bursitis increases. Examples include carpet laying, tile setting, gardening, painting and playing a musical instrument.
  • Other medical conditions. Certain systemic diseases and conditions — such as rheumatoid arthritis, gout and diabetes — increase the risk of developing bursitis. Being overweight can increase the risk of developing hip and knee bursitis.
