my dad i think has hyperextended his elbow at work. It has been hurting him for a month, he can move his arm, but at some points it hurts him. It has gotten to the point he cant lift anything. The pain is on his bone, and goes up all the way to his upper arm, he says that it is not in a muscle. He lost a lot of arm strength, its not swollen or red, and we thought it might be jammed so we tryed pulling on it to see if it would pop but it didnt. He refuses to see a doctor, we need help because, he cant not use it because he goes to work everyday and uses it, is there any way u can give us more information, or any help with it, like home excersizes, or do you have any answers that would be great, we just really need some help. We just got a sling for him but he can only use it when he comes home because he cant use it at work. do u think if he stayes off of it for a few days it might get better? well if you could please email us back, thank you!!!
