An elbow fracture is a break in one or more bones that comprise the elbow joint. At HSA, our skilled specialists are experienced in diagnosing and treating elbow fractures, providing comprehensive care to promote healing and restore function.
Treatment options for an elbow fracture
The treatment for an elbow fracture depends on the type, severity, and location of the fracture. The treatment options may include:
- Immobilization: For less severe fractures, immobilization with a splint or cast may be sufficient to allow the bones to heal.
- Closed Reduction: Sometimes, a non-surgical procedure called closed reduction may be performed to realign the bones without surgery.
- Surgical Intervention: Severe fractures or significant misalignments may require surgical intervention. Our skilled surgeons can use open reduction and internal fixation techniques to stabilize the bones and promote proper healing.
- Rehabilitation: After initial treatment, rehabilitation and physical therapy are crucial in restoring elbow strength, range of motion, and function.
