Olecranon bursitis is a condition characterized by inflammation and swelling of the bursa located at the tip of the elbow, called the olecranon bursa. The bursa is a small sac filled with fluid that acts as a cushion between the bone and the overlying skin and tendons. When it becomes inflamed, it can result in pain, swelling, and limited movement of the elbow.
Shoulder & Elbow
Golfer’s elbow, also known as medial epicondylitis, is a condition that causes pain and inflammation in the tendons that connect the forearm muscles to the inside of the elbow. It is commonly caused by repetitive or excessive stress on the tendons, resulting in small tears and subsequent inflammation. While it is named after golfers, it can occur in anyone who repeatedly uses their wrist or clenches their fingers.
Frozen shoulder, also known as adhesive capsulitis, is a condition characterized by pain and stiffness in the shoulder joint. It occurs when the capsule surrounding the shoulder joint becomes thickened and tight, leading to limited mobility and discomfort. The exact cause of frozen shoulder is often unknown, but it can be triggered by factors such as injury, prolonged immobility, or certain medical conditions.
The rotator cuff is a group of muscles and tendons that surround the shoulder joint and help stabilize and move the shoulder. Rotator cuff injuries are common and can range from mild inflammation to severe tears in the tendons. Treatment for rotator cuff injuries depends on the severity and can include both conservative (non-surgical) and surgical approaches.
