Does ANYONE know if there are bursa in the spine? I know we have 240 bursa but am seeking to find out where they all are. If there are any in or near the spine. Any help? Thanks.
My surgeon dosn''t even know or is not saying. I can''t find enough information out there.
Thank you Pete. Do you know any web site that would show where they might be located? I am having a Devil of a time finding a good place to look. Mostly they concentrate on the hips and the shoulder area.
I looked for a diagram of where they are located but, didn't find what I was looking for. Any help,I say thank you.
Good luck with your troubles too,
Thank you asandme,
So would you oplease email me so we may discuss this further. I may have to see a rheumatologist. I have never been to one. I heard bursas can be drained. I read that but, I can't find a diagram of where the 240 bursa are exactly. Thank you
Yes I am Pete, That would be why I stated that even my spine doctor could not or would not explain to me where the bursa are.
There in lays on difficulity I am having. He is a surgeon and IF it turns out to be a bursa that can be relieved then he never gets to get paid for any surgery. lol

I sent you mail.
Still looking for diagram answer. Any other answers. Thanks,
As well as the normal or natural bursa that a person has in their body bursa can form by themselves in places where there is extra stress.
Amputees often get them where the socket puts a lot of pressure on the stump
There is also a condition called interspinous bursitas its when bursa form around the spinous processes of the vertebra the spinous process are projections of bone at the rear of the vertebrae that muscles attach to.
Interspinous bursitis is usually found in the presence of major degenerative disc disease or degenerative joint disease.
Try googling Interspinous bursitis to find out more.
