Goddard and M. Goddard General Approach to the Patient with Elbow Pain The elbow should be inspected for swelling, deformity, and tenderness, and the range of motion (ROM) of the elbow should be evaluated (normal flexion/extension 0–145°). Elbow ROM can easily be compared to the unaffected side.

In septic bursitis, the swelling with be erythematous and tender. Even with this localized tenderness of the bursa, ROM of the elbow should be preserved; a decrease in ROM or significant pain with motion should alert the examiner to the possibility of a septic joint (see section “Red Flags” above). Painless olecranon bursitis with no evidence of infection can be managed conservatively; aspiration generally does NOT cure the problem and may introduce infection into the bursa.
