Sounds like you have some nerve impingement and muscle restrictions. Its important first before any of the workouts to assess why the muscle isnt able to fully extend, flex, abduct, and adduct. You can still get good tricep workout without full extension but eventually that will cause further muscle imbalance when you dont bring the muscle through its full length of range of motion. Theres lots of good videos on Youtube in regards to rehab after forearm injuries.
