Jackson, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/24/2017 -- NorthEast Spine & Sports Medicine, a medical practice that offers orthopedic surgery at their office in Jackson, NJ and five other offices throughout Central New Jersey, is pleased to announce that aspiration of the olecranon bursa procedures are available to treat elbow injuries or pain. Specifically, those who believe they are suffering from elbow or olecranon bursitis are encouraged to give one of their locations a call to determine if this procedure will be right for them.
The bony part of the back of the elbow is called the olecranon, which is just one of several bones in the body covered by a bursa. If put under enough stress and/or the person suffers constant elbow injuries, he or she may develop olecranon bursitis. Most of the time, olecranon bursitis—which causes swelling over the back of the elbow—clears up on its own if the person rests, avoids putting pressure on the affected elbow, and uses ice packs. However, sometimes rest will not work, especially if the bursa becomes infected.
Any patient who makes an appointment with NorthEast Spine & Sports Medicine to discover whether he or she has olecranon bursitis or another elbow condition may undergo blood tests and scans to determine the exact cause of the elbow pain. If it's determined that the patient is suffering from olecranon bursitis, the doctor may suggest undergoing an aspiration of the olecranon bursa procedure to reduce the swelling and discomfort.
Aspiration of the olecranon bursa procedures are complex and always performed by one of the board-certified physicians at NorthEast Spine & Sports Medicine. Those who are interested in learning more about this procedure, or would like to more about the joint injections they offer to patients who visit them from Point Pleasant, NJ, and the surrounding areas, can give the office closest to them a call.
