Dislocated elbow

After the shoulder, the elbow is the joint that dislocates more often, and in less than ten years old children it is the most common of all. In most of the cases elbow dislocations are posterior and 30- 40% are associated with fractures.

The most common mechanism that causes posterior dislocations of the radius and ulna on the humerus, is the fall back on arm with flexed elbow.

The pain is very intense at the time of the trauma and movements are impossible. In suspicion of dislocations associated with fracture is appropriate to conduct a radiological exam. Generally occurs the reduction as early as possible and after the reduction  the elbow is flexed to 90 degrees and immobilized for about two weeks.

Then is important to tackle all phases of rehabilitation in order to reach a complete functional recovery: from the control of pain and swelling to the recovery of motion, muscular strength and after that coordination exercises and the resumption of specific sport gesture.
