Elbow (Olecranon) Bursitis

Categories: Elbow Conditions

The bursa is a slippery sac between the loose skin and the bones of your elbow. The bursa allows the skin to move freely over the underlying bone. It is located at the tip of the elbow. Normally, the bursa is flat and it’s hard to tell it is even there. If the bursa becomes irritated or inflamed, a condition known as elbow bursitis develops.
