Chipped Elbow


I was diagnosed with a chipped elbow just over two weeks ago. I still only have about 1/2 of my range of motion. I was wondering what is a typical amount of time for healing. Also…better to ice it yet or heat?


  1. I was wondering if there is anything you can do to help regain range of motion and reduce pain for a chipped elbow? I recently chipped my right elbow and was told by a doctor i would need the orthoscopic surgery to clean it out. My problem is that i have a baseball camp coming up at the end of june and i want to wait to have my surgery until after the camp. What can i do to help so that i will be able to perform to my abilities at the camp. It is really important to me and i want to maybe impress a few scouts. Any advise would be wonderful. Zach Durbin
