A client of mine had surgery for a transcondilian elbow fracture. Of course, her ROM was ~0 after surgery, much better after initial hospital rehab. After more work she can ~fully extend her elbow (at least under load), but still doesn’t even approach full flexion, not even with ~40 lbs of pressure.
Under anaesthesia, just after the final surgery, her elbow could fully flex and extend, so it’s (/was) not the bone limiting the ROM.
Presuming it’s due to scar tissue, would (oral) proteolytic enzymes or serrapeptase be of any use?
Or, do you have any other suggestions?
Asking here because the docs don’t have any other suggestions.
Big thanks, Eisen
