Hi Wojt,

Don't know about the Genacol and Flexoprin but glucosamine and chondroitin are for healthy articular cartilage.  They won't help your bursitis.  The best thing for bursitis is rest to let the bursa settle down.

Good Luck,
Patty

Hello Wjoyt,

I just got a bursitis diagnosos yesterday. I have done alot of reading today. I am going to try stretching out the hamstring and work on the quad to see if I can get them working in better sync. I had an alignment surgery and my pes anserine bursa is irritated with the shift in my weight bearing.
