"Bursae" in context

Bursae are small fluid filled sacs found in various parts of the human body. They act as cushions or pillows for various surrounding muscles, bones and tendons. They help reduce friction and provide support, allowing us to move freely and comfortably.

Bursae are found throughout the body, usually near joints like the elbow, knee, ankle, hip, and shoulder. Some are present at birth while others develop over time. They are filled with a thick liquid called synovial fluid which helps with lubrication and protects the bones and soft tissue from rubbing against each other.
