Elbow bursitis exercises work to reduce the swelling of the bursa and maintain the elbow range of motion as the condition improves. Strengthening exercises targeting the triceps muscle and tendon may also help once pain levels have improved. Perform stretches/ mobility exercises for 5×30 seconds twice daily. Perform strength exercises with 3-4 sets x15 repetitions once daily or every other day. Find a difficulty level that is challenging without causing excessive pain.
