What exactly is spinal bursa fluid collection?

In brief: Bursa's

are tiny fluid filled "sacks" which lie between a tendon and it's insertion to reduce friction of the tendon as it does its job.
...in the spine these lie at the insertion(s) of the PARASPINAL muscles on either side of the bony spine! Hope this helps Dr Z
