Treating Olecranon Bursitis In Dublin, Ireland
If you’re experiencing pain and inflammation in your elbow, you may have olecranon bursitis. This condition is caused by a build-up of fluid in the olecranon bursa, which is located at the back of the elbow. While it can be a very painful condition, it can be treated with physical therapy and chiropractic care.
In this blog post, we’ll discuss the treatments offered by Dublin Physical & Chiropractic for olecranon bursitis. We’ll also provide some tips on how to reduce your risk of developing this condition.
What Causes Olecranon Bursitis?
The olecranon bursa is located at the back of the elbow, between the skin and the olecranon (the pointy part of your elbow). This small sac-like structure helps to cushion the bone against friction.
Olecranon bursitis can be caused by a number of things, including:
- Trauma or injury to the elbow.
- Rheumatoid arthritis.

How We Treat Olecranon Bursitis At Dublin Physical & Chiropractic
At Dublin Physical & Chiropractic we have combined the best of physical therapy and chiropractic care to provide an optimal treatment plan for olecranon bursitis.
Physical therapy For Olecranon Bursitis
Our physical therapists use a combination of exercise therapy, laser therapy or shockwave therapy with intrinsic core strengthening to reduce pain and discomfort, improve mobility and strength.
Not only that, but they will work with you to prevent future injuries by resolving muscular imbalances and rebuilding strong, health and organised tissue fibres of the effected muscles, tendons, ligaments and bursa that surround the elbow.
Chiropractic Care For Olecranon Bursitis
Our chiropractic care includes spinal adjustments and manipulation to allow the nervous system at its best, which allow freedom of movement, reduce inflammation and pain.
It also helps to improve the function of all body systems, increase joint range of motion and decrease nerve irritability.
Laser Therapy For Olecranon Bursitis
Laser therapy is quick yet effective therapy for reducing pain and improve range of motion. Laser therapy works by directing coherent light energy to the target area, which helps to stimulate healing processes.
This type of therapy is often used as an adjunct treatment along with physical therapy and chiropractic care.
Exercise Therapy For Olecranon Bursitis
Our exercise therapy programme includes a combination of exercises that can be tailored specifically for you. This helps to improve range of motion, reduce pain and inflammation, and increase strength and mobility.
Shockwave Therapy For Olecranon Bursitis
Shockwave therapy is a type of treatment that uses high-energy sound waves to stimulate healing in the body. This therapy is often used for chronic conditions such as olecranon bursitis.
Shockwave therapy has been shown to improve blood flow, reduce oedema and inflammation, promote collagen production and tissue healing.
Intrinsic Core Strengthening For Olecranon Bursitis
Our intrinsic core strengthening exercises include a series of specific movements that help to build strength in the area surrounding your elbow. This helps to improve stability and reduce the likelihood of future injuries.
