Dislocated Elbow Injury need some advice
April 16 I dislocated my elbow while snowboarding
I had the ulna bone put back (reduced) about 1 hour after injury (after x rays were taken)
then in a splint for 2-3 weeks
I have been to PT(physical therapy) 3 times
I have been trying to stretch my elbow /arm with PT exercises given
now it June 8
for extension of arm I still have about a 20 degrees bend
for me to try and touch my shoulder I can get 4 inches away if I push with the other hand
seem like some swelling still exists - when I push on outside of arm near elbow I can press in and then feel a "dent"
I am so ready to have full use of my elbow
has anyone had this type of injury?
what happened to you?
does my rehab sound normal?
I would appreciate any feedback
