Elbow Bursitis Treatment

Elbow Bursitis Treatment - OSMO Patch

If you are currently suffering from inflammation, swelling or other painful symptoms caused by elbow bursitis, then it is highly likely that this is starting to affect your work, sleep and lifestyle.

Furthermore, if you are someone who enjoyed physical activities or just getting out and about prior to developing elbow bursitis, then it can be quite mentally challenging to deal with.

Bursitis in the elbow can often make even everyday activities difficult, dramatically impacting your quality of life. This resulting change in lifestyle, combined with the ongoing pain and disrupted sleep, may possibly lead to depression in some individuals.

Hence it is important to make sure that you properly address bursitis in the elbow as early as possible.

Below we have provided some valuable tips that you can benefit from straight away. These tips can help minimize the risk of further injury while also supporting your road to recovery.

Following the tips we discuss the most common treatment options available, these include strong anti-inflammatory medication, steroid injections and aspiration of fluid from the area using a syringe.

Finally, you will learn about the OSMO Patch, a natural and effective treatment option which takes advantage of a well know process found in nature called… OSMOSIS!

TIPS for Elbow Bursitis Relief.

1. Is Exercise For Elbow Bursitis Helpful?

Often when we talk to individuals with elbow bursitis they are either continuing physical activities that may have initially contributed to the condition or they have begun an exercise regimen to strengthen the area in the hope of relieving the symptoms.

Unfortunately, exercise for elbow bursitis or other such physical activities only places more stress on the injury, resulting in further aggravating the condition.

While it is important to move around normally and not to be bedridden, you should listen to your body and ease off from any activity that is causing pain or placing stress on the elbow. This includes leaning the elbow on any hard surface.

In particular you should avoid any type of repetitive stress where possible. Even seemingly light repetitive movements if done continually over a period of time will cause irritation (such as long periods of use on a keyboard). Unfortunately ongoing irritation may lead to chronic bursitis in the elbow and subsequent formation of fibrous scar tissue. Further resulting in additional inflammation.

So if you enjoy exercise, sports or participate in any physical activity we suggest that you take a break from these activities. Remember that a little sacrifice up front can give a great reward in the end.

Now while exercise for elbow bursitis is not recommended while the condition is active, it may be useful once the condition has completely resolved to rebuild lost muscle mass and strength. This should be done gradually and in some cases it may be helpful to obtain guidance from a qualified physiotherapist to ensure you are doing this correctly.

2. Is Massage a Good Natural Treatment for Elbow Bursitis?

Many people that we talk to will have already tried deep tissue massage to treat their elbow bursitis. Unfortunately, this is one of the worst things that you can do as it will cause further irritation of the condition.

Unlike a muscular injury, which can respond well to massage, elbow bursitis contains inflammatory fluids which are encapsulated in the inflamed and swollen synovial lining of the elbow bursa. The problem with massage is that the fluid cannot be dispersed since it is encapsulated. Furthermore massaging directly over the bursitis will only further irritate the already inflamed synovial lining.

Massaging can however be extremely good for relieving areas where there is referred pain. Often people with elbow bursitis may experience pain in other areas of the arm, such as the forearm or shoulder.

If you are seeing a massage therapist it is a good idea to have discussion with them and request that they do not massage anywhere directly over or close to the bursitis. Any good massage therapist will have your best interests at heart and be more than happy to work with you to achieve the best outcome.

3. Should you be Applying Ice or Heat for your Elbow Bursitis Pain?

There is so much misinformation out there regarding treating elbow bursitis. Some people and websites suggest using ice for relieving bursitis elbow pain, while others suggest heat. So what is the answer?

When to use ice for treating elbow bursitis?

Ice should be used during the first 24-72 hours after you first become aware of the condition or if you accidentally knock or irritate the area. While ice can also be used to reduce pain by numbing the area, it is unlikely to have any further benefit in reducing the remaining swelling after the initial 72 hrs has passed.

When to use heat for treating elbow bursitis?

After the first 72 hrs has passed, then heat becomes the preferred option. This is due to the fact that heat promotes blood flow, which is necessary for the healing process. IMPORTANT: Do not use heat if an infection is suspected.

What are the Current Treatment Options for Elbow Bursitis?

For the first 24-48 hrs after the initial onset of elbow pain or the visible swelling due to elbow bursitis (olecranon bursitis) it may be appropriate to apply ice and then immobilize and rest the elbow (This should hopefully help minimize the initial 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 elbow bursitis then there may be several reasons why you already feel that any or all of the above 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.

Elbow bursitis

Hi, I wanted to send you a testimonial on the patches.

I woke up one Saturday morning and saw a bulge on my elbow with fluid in there and decided to Google it. I learnt many people opted to drain it. That was not appealing to me at all!

I discovered the OSMO Patches and ordered them. After using the first 3 patches, I noticed my bursitis getting smaller. After the 9th it was almost gone, then totally gone after the 10th patch. Using your patches saved me from having a doctor drain the fluid…thanks!!!

If I know of anyone with bursitis I will be sending them to you ASAP!

Bursitis in shoulder & elbow

Hi, I have had bursitis in my right shoulder for more than 3 years, after about 6 months of physio, I still have a lot of pain. About 14 months ago I developed bursitis in the left shoulder and elbow, which causes me very disturbed sleeps, I had treatment with an Osteopath, the pain subsided only temporarily

I have used 9 of your patches, 2 on my elbow and the rest on my shoulder, the improvement in my shoulder has been amazing, I still have a lot of pain but the movement has improving so much that I don’t hesitate in getting dressed as previously just pulling a T-shirt over my head was painful.

Thank you so much and I hope more people find your website. What a blessing.

Elbow bursitis

Dear Toky, this is to follow up on my last email.

After the 7th patch, the swelling began to go down. I did have to use all 10 patches, but by that time the swelling was gone and my elbow was back to normal.

So the patches did work, and I am completely satisfied. I would buy them again and recommend them to others.

Thanks so much.

Swollen elbow almost half the size of a tennis bal

After noticing a swollen lump on my elbow almost half the size of a tennis ball, I visited my doctor who explained it was a bursa and could be drained but would likely re-occur. Like others, I found your website and decided to “give it a go” although being a little skeptical.

While waiting, my doctor drained it by needle, but it re-filled within 3-4 days as predicted. When the patches arrived, I immediately used them with skepticism. The next morning, I could not believe my eyes, it was covered with similar fluid as the doctor had removed and again after 3 more.

My elbow is now back to normal, and I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone with similar problems.

Elbow bursitis

My elbow and shoulder were both injured at the same time, which were attended to by a highly respected orthopaedic physician.

After treatment, my shoulder fully recovered but the bursitis continued in full bloom. My doctor did not suggest draining it because the bursitis would likely return. After 7 weeks of no relief I researched the Internet for answers. That is when I discovered your product. On applying your patch to my elbow for 3 days the bursitis disappeared.

Simply amazing. Thank you!

Bursa on elbow

Hi, I want to add to your list of testimonials my experience.

I developed a bursa on my right elbow by supporting a heavy motor which was the size of a tennis ball. I was attracted by your lists of results and tried 10 patches. The bursa reduced in size to perhaps a golf ball, Determined to follow through, I bought 10 more and continued treatment.

It has now disappeared completely and not returned. I have little doubt your patches worked the miracle on my elbow and heartily endorse their claims to fame.

Bursitis of the elbow, knee swelling & leg cramps

My husband healed his bursitis of the elbow with your patches. –

They are amazing, and he is now using 2 patches on each knee at night for knee swelling, and it seems to give him amazing relief from cramps in his legs that kept him awake throughout every night for years.

He has used everything from niacin to bars of ivory soap between the sheets.
