Dislocated Elbow
Hi
I dislocated my elbow 5 days ago, it was put back into place and is now in a splint. How long should I leave the splint on and I have read on the net exrecises should be done. When should I start with those. I dont want to start to early but also want to recover and get back to normal asap
Thanks
E

Dear Erika
Apolgies for late reply- hope you got to a physiotherapist for the exercises?
