Hey, has anyone else experienced a fracture or broken bone in their arm? I fractured my elbow a while back and now I am trying to get my strength back. Any tips on a good recovery and should I purchase an arm support. I'm currently lifting a good 5kg lighter than I was before the break and even that is tough. Thanks

Did you get full range of motion back on the fractured elbow? I cannot fully extend my elbow since my fracture

how long ago did you fracture yours? yeah I think mine is pretty much ok now but it occasionally clicks. It has been about 3 months since I fractured mine.

ps I couldn't fully extend it for about a month, maybe longer.

It's been years. Never rehabbed it. It locks at about 15 degrees less than full extention. No real loss of strength just the loss in range of motion throws all my mechanics off on that side
