Student’s Elbow: Ayurvedic Concept, Treatment, Medicines

Article by Dr Raghuram Y.S. MD (Ay)
Student’s Elbow / Olecranon bursitis is an inflammatory swelling, it can be treated on the lines of Shotha Chikitsa (treatment of swelling) as explained in Ayurveda. The bursa is either filled with inflammatory or infected fluid, many times sterile fluid. When there is active inflammation and pain predominates with signs of inflammation like redness, pain, burning etc the treatment shall be pitta alleviating and when the fluid fills the bursa, the treatment should be kapha alleviating.

In short, the Student’s Elbow should be managed on the below said guidelines:

  • Management of vitiated Pitta
  • Management of vitiated Kapha
  • Shotha Chikitsa with special reference to Pitta predominant Shotha and Kapha predominant Shotha in non-oedematous inflammatory swelling and oedematous inflammatory swelling respectively
  • Krimighna (anti-bacterial, antibiotic) chikitsa in presence of infection
  • Vidradhi chikitsa (treatment of abscess or pus pockets) when the swelling is filled with pus

Pittahara Chikitsa

Treating Student’s Elbow on the lines of ‘treating pitta vitiation’
Inflammation basically suggests involvement of Pitta. In the initial conditions of Bursitis it might not be actively associated with ‘fluid filled bursa’.

Therefore in the earlier stages the swelling and oedema are not obvious, but the pain and burning, redness with mild to moderate swelling and limited movements may be present.

In such conditions we can adapt pitta alleviating measures or pitta-vata alleviating management because all sorts of inflammation are associated invariably with pitta vitiation.

The strategy of combating Pitta helps in preventing the progression of inflammatory process and might check the process of fluid accumulation also. At the same time, the symptoms of pitta vitiation i.e. inflammatory signs and symptoms like pain, burning sensation, rise in warmth, swelling and redness will reduce.

To control Pitta or high pitta activity in the body, the pitta vitiating causes should be first avoided. Avoid these Pitta Aggravating factors

For this, management of high Pitta with Virechana (purgation) treatment and medicines with sweet, astringent and bitter tastes are administered.

Kaphahara Chikitsa

Treating Student’s Elbow on the lines of ‘treating kapha vitiation’
In the second stage of inflammation, the fluid starts accumulating in the bursa. This causes swelling over the olecranon region of the elbow. In this stage there is an involvement of kapha, because the water or fluid component belongs to kapha.

If the inflammation is high and the fluid accumulation is less, it might be inflammatory in nature. In such conditions it is high pitta and moderate kapha involvement in bursitis. On the contrary, if the fluid is more sterile and the inflammation (or inflammatory symptoms) has considerably subsided, if the fluid accumulation predominate the signs and symptoms of inflammation, then we should consider high kapha morbidity with mild to moderate pitta involvement.

Thus, in olecranon bursitis (or any type of inflammatory swelling), both pitta and kapha are involved. But the oedema being inflammatory or non inflammatory in nature depends on the severity of pitta and kapha respectively.
When the fluid accumulation is more we should approach in terms of combating the vitiated kapha, this in turn helps in reducing the fluid collection or reducing the oedematous swelling.
Management of such a condition caused with evident Kapha Dosha aggravation is by therapies such as
Vamana – Vomiting Panchakarma treatment,
Deergha kala sthitam madhyam – old fermented medicinal alcoholic drinks
Prajagarana – awakening late nights
Aneka roopa vyayama – various types of physical exercises
Ruksha vimardana – dry massages

Kshoudra – honey
Medaghnam aushadham – fat depleting medicines (medicines for obesity and weight gain)

Panchakarma Chikitsa

Role of Panchakarma in the management of Student’s Elbow
Panchakarma doesn’t have a big role in Student’s elbow. Most of the cases respond to oral medication and external applications. Panchakarma might be needed only when the inflammation is more or when the fluid collection in the bursa is repeatedly getting collected in spite of many schedules of medications.

The below mentioned Panchakarma methods are useful:

  • Snehapana – internal administration of medicated ghee and oils, especially the pitta alleviating ghritas like tiktakam ghrita, guggulutiktakam ghritam, patoladi ghritam etc when there is active inflammation and the fluid collection is not evident. It is good to start them as soon as the inflammatory signs are seen. The same ghritas shall be administered in higher quantity if the cleansing treatments i.e. Vamana or Virechana are planned in recurrent cases.
  • Swedana – sweating treatment or steaming, especially in kapha predominant conditions, wherein the fluid has occupied bursa
  • Vamana – therapeutic emesis, in kapha predominant conditions
  • Virechana – therapeutic purgation, in pitta predominant conditions
  • Nitya Virechana – daily purgation at home with pitta and kapha alleviating medicines, as a part of oral medication
  • Ksheera vasti – enemas with medicated milk, in very stubborn conditions of inflammation

The panchakarma treatments keep flushing out the toxins and morbid doshas and malas (excreta) on regular basis. This makes sure that the disease doesn’t progress further and the pathogenesis stops at the initial stages itself.

Panchakarma treatments shall be repeated at short intervals in stubborn cases. They also heal infections apart from getting rid of the inflammation and reducing the swelling. Or else, nitya virechana shall be administered after a course of vamana or virechana has been completed.

External Treatments in Student’s Elbow
External treatments in Olecranon bursitis should be oriented towards the relief of inflammation and reduction of fluid collection. They will provide good results if combined with Panchakarma treatments, chiefly Virechana. Below mentioned are the best treatments which can be conducted over the swollen joints:

Abhyanga – massage with medicated herbal oils
Swedana – steaming, basically done in the form of pinda sweda or bolus fomentation, chiefly:

  • Valuka sweda (sand bolus fomentation) in kapha predominance
  • Churna pinda sweda (herbal powder fomentation) in presence of both pitta and or kapha predominance
  • Patra pinda sweda (leaf bolus fomentation) chiefly in pitta and vata predominance when pain and inflammation dominate the picture
  • Bashpa sweda (vapour steaming with herbal decoctions and or medicated milk) after abhyanga will also help
  • Nadi sweda – tubular fomentation (same as bashpa sweda)

Dhara – stream pouring of medicated liquids, mainly decoctions in case of kapha predominance (fluid filled swelling) and ghrita (medicate ghee) or ksheera (medicated milk) dhara in pitta predominant conditions wherein the symptoms of inflammation are more in comparison to fluid collection. Though it is also a type of swedana, I have counted it separately because at times we need to do the dhara with cold medicines, when the pitta vitiation is very severe whereas in Swedana every procedure includes heat.

Lepa – application of medicinal pastes
Upanaha – poultices
Avagahana – dipping of joints in the medicinal liquids

Clinical experience

My experience in handling Student’s Elbow through Ayurveda –
I would confess and admit that I did not get to see many cases of Student’s Elbow in my long standing clinical practice. We won’t get to see too many cases of olecranon bursitis because people would get some analgesic or anti-inflammatory drug from the counter and manage these things even without the consent of doctor, thinking that it is easy to handle and not a serious issue to handle.

But a few cases I have encountered, I have managed to handle them very well with external applications and anti-inflammatory (anti-pitta and anti-kapha) medicines and formulations. In a couple of cases I had to prefer virechana. Nitya Virechana is my favourite prescription. I have seen good results when nitya virechana is advised along with anti-inflammatory medicines. Many medicines used for nitya-virechana like nimbamritadi eranda tailam are by themselves good anti-inflammatory medicines.


Limitations in handling olecranon bursitis through Ayurvedic methods of treatment –
With effective medicines and line of treatment and the variety of treatments Ayurveda provides in handling the bursitis, I don’t feel we have limitations in handling these cases.

Just before finishing –
Student’s elbow or olecranon bursitis can be effectively handled through effective Ayurvedic remedies. But the key is prevention. Since the disease mainly occurs due to repeated minor or single major injury to the elbow or due to the constant pressure over the elbow as happens in students leaning their elbow and forearm against hard writing tables and also in other professions as mentioned, students and those in profession which causes these traumas should be well educated so that they can avoid these traumas and avoid themselves being victims of this condition.
