During the physical examination, your doctor will inspect your affected knee and compare it to your healthy knee.

Apply ice at regular intervals 3 or 4 times a day for 20 minutes at a time. Each session should reduce swelling considerably if the knee is also being rested. Elevate the affected leg except when it is necessary to walk.

The corticosteroid is an anti-inflammatory drug that is stronger than the medication that can be taken by mouth. Infectious bursitis is initially treated with antibiotics. Surgical drainage is required if the infection does not respond to antibiotics alone. Draining the bursa may also treat chronic swelling that causes disability, but if the swelling continues, your orthopaedic surgeon may recommend surgical removal of the bursa.

After surgery, the knee should regain its flexibility in a few days and normal activities can be resumed in a few weeks. Prevention You can help prevent bursitis by following these simple recommendations: Wear kneepads if you work on your knees or participate in contact sports such as football, basketball, or wrestling.
