the best olecranon bursitis treatment in IPOH

If you’ve had a bad blow to one of your elbows or spend a lot of time leaning on them, you could

see the tip of the joint get red and swollen. In severe cases of swelling, a lump could form, jutting

out from the tip -- kind of like the cartoon character Popeye. That’s why olecranon bursitis is sometimes

called “Popeye’s elbow.”

“Olecranon” refers to the pointy bone in your elbow. “Bursitis” refers to inflammation of a part of you

r body called a bursa.

A bursa is a sac full of fluid. Bursa occur throughout your body, acting as cushions between

body parts, such as where muscles and tendons glide over bones and near large joints such as your shoulders,

hips, and knees.

The bursa in your elbow, called the olecranon bursa, reduces friction between the skin and the pointy bone

in your elbow, which you can feel when you bend it.

You don’t notice the bursa because it usually lies flat, conforming to the shape of your bone. But when it

gets irritated, the bursa can get swollen and large.


Your elbow can start swelling for several reasons:

Trauma: A hard blow to the elbow such as hitting it or falling on top of it could cause the bursa

to swell.

Too much pressure: Leaning your elbow against a hard surface over a long time can irritate

the bursa. Plumbers, air-conditioning technicians, and others who have to work on their

elbows are more likely to get this.

Other conditions: If you have another condition such as rheumatoid arthritis (a disease

where your immune system attacks your joints), gout (a type of arthritis), or kidney failure

in which you need dialysis (your blood is filtered through a machine), you have a higher

chance of getting Popeye’s elbow.

Infection: If your bursa is infected from a cut, scrape, or insect bite, this will cause the

sac to fill up with extra fluid, swell, and get red.


You may see some of these symptoms when you have elbow bursitis:
