Bursitis (Popeye's Elbow)

What is it?

Bursitis of the elbow is the inflammation of the small sac of fluid on the back of the elbow (funny Bone a.k.a Olecranon). It is sometimes called Popeye elbow.

Why do I have it?

You may have had a sudden injury, such as a blow to the elbow, causing bleeding or fluid buildup or an infection.

When does it hurt?

With movement of the elbow or pressure on the elbow. It can also be very tender to even touch.

The Bracing Experts Advice:

A brace or support should focus on protecting your elbow during activities. An elbow support with reinforced padding or a gel insert will relieve and prevent pain. P.S. Avoid leaning on your elbows and if the swelling persists see your doctor about getting it drained.
