Elbow Bursitis Treatment

The proper term for elbow bursitis is in fact olecranon bursitis. Olecranon bursitis is a very common and painful inflammatory condition in the elbow that affects many people of different ages.

The elbow is an area that seems to be very susceptible to injury. This may be due to sports, physical job requirements or simply a repetitive activity that results in stress to the elbow. Whatever the reason, an elbow injury can be the cause of extreme pain.

If you would like to learn more about elbow bursitis, and how the OSMO Patch combined with adequate rest can help reduce the inflammation, swelling and association pain please continue reading below.

What is Elbow Bursitis (Olecranon Bursitis)?

Olecranon bursitis is the proper name for the inflammatory condition ‘elbow bursitis’. Elbow pain due to olecranon bursitis occurs when a small bursa within the elbow (which normally acts as a small cushion between bones and tendons) becomes inflamed and swollen. This can occur for several reasons which will be discussed below.

Other names often given to this is ‘Poppy Elbow’ due to the large lump that may appear on the elbow.

What are causes of Elbow bursitis?

As mentioned above, the elbow is very susceptible to injury. Below are some of the common causes for elbow bursitis.

  • Repetitive strain and stress to the elbow such as from playing sports, lifting weights or resting elbows on hard surfaces for long periods of time.
  • Sudden impact such as from a fall, sports injury or an accident.
  • Natural wear and tear of the elbow joint.
  • Pre-existing inflammatory conditions such as osteoarthritis.

What are the signs & symptoms of bursitis in the elbow?

  • Signs and symptoms of bursitis in the elbow may include;
  • A small to large visible lump on the elbow
  • Discomfort and elbow pain at rest,
  • Pain in the elbow when bending the arm,
  • Moderate to severe elbow pain when placing weight on the elbows

Elbow bursitis treatment options?

For the first 24-48 hrs after the initial onset of elbow pain or the visible swelling due to olecranon bursitis it may be appropriate to apply ice then immobilise and rest the elbow (This should hopefully help minimise any swelling).

Unfortunately most people either miss this initial window to treat their elbow injury or their elbow bursitis still continues to swell and cause increased pain.

When this happens your doctor will normally offer either; anti-inflammatory medication, an injection with cortisone or aspiration of fluid from the elbow using a syringe assuming there is a visible lump (this is usually rather a painful procedure for the majority of people).

If you are currently suffering from olecranon bursitis then there may be several reasons why you already feel that any of the above elbow bursitis treatments are not really a viable option for you. This may include;

  • You have already tried one or more of these and they provided you little to no benefit.
  • You may not be able to take these medications due to age or a pre-existing medical condition.

Alternatively you may consider such procedures as being unnecessary, painful and invasive. Then again you may just prefer to first try and use a natural treatment for your elbow bursitis.

Fortunately, the OSMO Patch now offers an Intelligent 100% Natural Alternative!

On applying your patch to my elbow for three days the bursitis disappeared. Simply amazing. My elbow and shoulder were both injured at the same time.

Hello, My name is Garry Gracey; I am a former HANDBALL CHAMPION.  I banged my elbow while playing handball.  It became swollen after a few days and my family doctor recommended not to drain the bursa on the elbow but to have it take its natural healing course. “Being impatient” I googled and found OSMO […]

Dear Toky: I was diagnosed with severe bursitis in my left elbow in mid February.  I saw an orthopaedist in March who attempted to aspirate my bursa and also injected cortisone in the bursa.  This treatment had absolutely no effect.  A couple of weeks later the same doctor successfully aspirated over 30 cc’s of fluid […]
