To: Physical Therapist
I was playing tennis and fell and fx my
R Olecranon on Oct 20 2009. Had a Long cast
for 6 weeks...and now have had PT for 2 months.
I am unable at this point to straighten my arm completely or touch my shoulder (need 2 inches)
Beginning to make a almost normal fist.
I can flex my hand down but not back too much.

I wanted to know if you can suggest some exercises.

The overhead motions associated with throwing, tennis and volleyball put a tremendous stress on the elbow joint and ulnar collateral ligament (UCL).
