Ultrasound therapy for recurrent noninfective olecranon bursitis: A case report
Olecranon bursa is the commonly involved structure of the elbow joint in trauma of any mechanical cause or infections due to its subcutaneous position. The overall incidence may vary, but it is more common in males between 30 and 60 years. Various pharmaceutical and physiotherapeutic treatment options are available based on septic or nonseptic conditions. Mostly antibiotics and nonsteroidal anti‑inflammatory drugs are widely used by physicians, whereas electrotherapy modalities are the choice of treatment by physiotherapists. Among which, ultrasound (US) therapy is found to be more convenient and effective in treating bursitis. As of the recent evidence available, US therapy is highly effective in treating olecranon bursitis.
