Calcific Bursitis is a medical condition in which the bursa suffers inflammation because of which the patient may suffer severe pain in their shoulders, legs, hands, or joints. Bursa is a sack which remains filled with bodily fluid. Its purpose is to act as a cushion for joint movements. In certain situations, the bursa suffers inflammation which causes extreme pains in the joints of the hands, shoulders, or legs. The plural term for bursa is bursae. Bursae are present in all parts of the human body which undergo friction during movement. It offers a cushion- like service to our body joints to make it possible for us to move our hands or legs. The fluid filled in bursae is known as synovial fluid which is a transparent bodily fluid and is lubricating in nature.

Known Causes of Calcific Bursitis:

Calcific Bursitis may be caused because of a number of reasons. Some of the common ones are as follows:

1) Rheumatic or arthritic problems like gouty arthritis or pseudogout.

2) Extremely strenuous and regular physical activity.

3) Severe injuries and joint infections.

It should be noted that infection rarely becomes the cause of bursitis because there is very little chance of any kind of it in or near the bursae. However, the latter may get infected because of certain injuries which may cause a fault or break or puncture in the skin that lies over the bursae. Similarly, those bacteria which continue to float in our blood may also become the reason of infections in such bursae which are already inflamed because of injury or strenuous exercises or physical labor. Calcific bursitis may become severe in advanced stages if it is left unnoticed or untreated for a long duration. Because of this, calcium starts depositing over the joints and that causes impediment in movement.
