In brief: Various

It depends on where the bursitis is.
Bursitis means there is inflammation around a part of the body that moves a lot. The inflammation causes pain. Bursitis occurs in the bursa, which is a small collection of fluid that the body makes to lubricate an area that moves a lot (kind of like motor oil). There are bursae in the shoulder, knee, hip, hands, shoulder blades (anywhere with a lot of movement).

In brief: Depends on location

Bursitis is inflammation of a fluid-filled sac around joint.
It usually is a temporary condition, associated with an injury, overuse activities and (rarely) infection. It can be treated with rest, cortisone/steroid injections, anti-inflammatories, rehab. Exercises, icing, etc. Your question implies that the patient may be pregnant. Treatment options must be customized to avoid harm to the fetus.
