When are you most likely to get bursitis and where?

ANSWER

You're more likely to get bursitis at an older age. One of the most common places it strikes is the shoulder, which has the greatest range of motion of all the body's major joints. If you get bursitis there, you'll likely feel pain along the outside top of your shoulder.

You can also get bursitis in your elbows, hips, and knees.
