Bursitis is a condition in which liquid and inflammation (swelling) build up in the bursa (a sac that cushions a joint). Bursitis can be caused by overuse or excessive pressure on the joint, or due to injury, infection, or an underlying condition, such as arthritis.
Signs and symptoms of elbow bursitis include:
- Pain in the elbow
