My 13 yo son dislocated his L elbow plalying football 8 weeks ago. It was very unstable in the ER,had to be reduced twice, and then had a splint put on (at 90 degrees flexion) for 10 days. Then a soft cast-type brace with “dial in” mobility was put on. At first 10 degrees was allowed for 2 weeks, then up to 20 for the next two weeks. After 2 weeks of PT, he still has 20 degrees to go each way. The MD was concerned at the apt 2 days ago, saying that we hope to get full ROM and may need to do some manipulation under anaesthesia in 4 weeks if there is not dramatic improvemnt. Question–is there a possiblity that he may NOT recover completely, we are listening and doing what the pros tells us to do. But now we are a bit nervous since the MD is concerned.
