Calcific bursitis is a condition characterized by the formation of calcium deposits in a bursa, which is a fluid-filled sac that serves to cushion and lubricate joints and muscles. Calcium deposits can cause pain, swelling, and tenderness around the affected joint or muscle. Treatment usually includes anti-inflammatory, shockwave medications, and corticosteroid injections.
