Bursitis is a painful illness which mainly affects the knees and the elbows. It is an illness that is often linked to particular activities or occupations, including those where workers are required to crawl or kneel as part of their job. Some of the occupations where workers are at an increased risk of developing bursitis include:
- IT support workers
Bursitis occurs when the bursas (fluid filled sacs) become inflamed. The bursas can be found on the elbows and knees and they are responsible for keeping the muscles safely away from the bones. When tasks such as regular kneeling or crawling are carried out, excess pressure is put on the bursas and this causes them to swell. Swelling of the bursas can cause significant pain and if have developed the condition at work, you may be entitled to claim financial compensation.
