PMID:  20883899     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Elbow dislocation in the athletic population is not an uncommon injury. The literature does not clearly establish treatment guidelines, with treatment being extrapolated from the experience in the general population. A short period of immobilization with early range of motion exercises limits disability and allows return to sports participation within 6 weeks.
