Subacromial bursitis is the term given when the subacromial bursa is inflamed. The subacromial bursa is located under the acromion of the AC joint (acromioclavicular) and extends down to just above the humeral head. The role of the subacromial bursa is to protect and help the rotator cuff tendons move smoothly when rolling the arm in an upwards and downwards motion.
The bursa is also commonly called the Subacromial-Subdeltoid Bursa or SA-SD bursa and is the largest bursa in the body.
Subacromial bursitis may result from impact injury, repetitive stress, impingement from bone spurs or the congenital shape of the acromion causing narrowing. The common term for subacromial bursitis is simply shoulder bursitis.
