What is the treatment for Knee Tendon Bursitis?

Our expert team of doctors prescribe the right treatment procedure for your condition. Some of these strategies are:

Medications such as antibiotics are used when the cause of knee bursitis is an infection.

Physical Therapy: Physical therapy increases the strength of the muscle and flexibility. It might also help alleviate pain and reduce the chances of further episodes of knee bursitis

Corticosteroid injection: If the condition of a patient gets severe and basic treatments are not fruitful, then the doctor might inject a corticosteroid drug into the bursa. This injection is used to reduce inflammation.

Aspiration: This procedure is used to reduce excess fluid and reduce inflammation. Aspiration can cause short-term pain and swelling.

Surgery: When a patient suffers from severe chronic or recurrent bursitis and no other treatments work, the doctors might perform a surgery to remove the bursa.

Individuals can also try these home remedies for the treatment of their condition:

  • Provide adequate rest to your knee
  • Take over-the-counter pain relief medications. 
  • Apply ice on the knee
  • Apply compression to the affected area
