YOUR INJURY

Bursitis - Suprapatellar

Suprapatellar bursitis is a condition where the fluid sac between your quadriceps tendon and your thigh bone, known as the femur, becomes compressed and inflamed above the kneecap (patella).

A bursa is a lubricating sac of fluid that prevents friction between two surfaces, but if there is too much pressure on it then it will become inflamed. The inflammation becomes present to try to remodel the bursa to withstand this extra pressure, however, this can create even more pressure which leads to pain, discomfort and potential limitations in movement.

The key to successful treatment is to decrease this pressure by reducing tension through the tissues and giving the bursa the time it needs to remodel itself.

The Heal My Injury Treatment Plan is designed to decrease the inflammation and relieve tension over the bursa.
