What are some effective natural supplements for bursitis ?

Just looking for some long term relief for bursitis condition, as well as maintenance for bursa sacs.

Re: What are some effective natural supplements for bursitis ?

I'm seeing an orthopedic doctor now for Bursitis - its on the front of my knee - the bursa sack keeps filling up with fluid. When I went to the doctor he numbed it and then drained it and gave me a cortisone shot and it seemed to help, but I've done that twice and now they're telling me I may need the bursa sack removed. The doctor also told me to do 50 straight leg lifts twice a day to build up the muscles in my knee. You can take an herbal anti-inflammatory to help with the swelling.
