I am still unclear as to what causes elbow bursitis and should I ally heat or cold to it. I can’t take NSAIDS because of medication taking for DVT.
Hello Mr. Pabich, elbow bursitis is a type of inflammation, it's caused by repeated use of/weight on the elbow. Most of the bursitis are not infected, self-care can be effective, including rest, ice(not heat), elevation, and OTC pain reliever if necessary. If you have chills or a fever, that might be an infected one, and you'll need to see your doctor.
