Elbow Dislocation

Looseness in elbow joints causes the joint to catch, pop or slide out of place during certain arm movements. This can often happen after a fall or previous elbow dislocation. Our orthopedic experts are specially trained in restoring elbows after injury. We’ll take a look at your medical history, run appropriate tests and determine the cause. Our goal is to provide care to get you back in motion. 

Elbow dislocation (or instability) can be painful and disruptive to daily living. It’s most common in patients 10 to 20 years old. Physical therapy, surgery or a combination may be recommended. You usually regain full-range of motion within a year.
