Elbows can be broken by both adults and children in all manner of ways – for example, as a result of high-energy trauma in a car or motorcycle accident, or when the sufferer of such an injury falls off a bicycle or skateboard and lands directly on their elbow. Your elbow could even sustain a fracture if it is struck in a sideswipe incident while you are resting it out of an open car window. |
We could list all of the ways in which elbows can sustain damage, but if you have suffered such an injury, we’re sure you’ll be much more interested in how you can aid your recovery to full fitness, which is where the DryPro Broken Elbow Cast Cover we can provide can be so invaluable.
How can you tell you have broken your elbow?
There are various classic symptoms of an elbow fracture or similar injury that requires medical attention. Your elbow or the nearby area may be swollen or deformed, or there may be signs of discolouration such as bruising or redness. It is also likely that you have broken your elbow if you have difficulty moving it through its complete range of motion.
Given the risk of an elbow fracture leading to potentially serious and disabling complications, if you do suspect you have sustained one, it is vital to immediately seek medical attention at a hospital emergency department. If, however, you only have mild swelling and no bruising, open wounds or loss of feeling, it may be a good idea to call a doctor first for advice before seeking emergency medical attention.
Protect this complicated area of the body as well as possible
If you have read the rest of our site or used DryPro cast covers before, you will know they have been designed to enable you to carry on certain normal activities involving a great amount of contact with water – for example, bathing – while protecting and preserving your cast and thereby aiding your recovery from injury.
Such a product to shield your cast from potential causes of damage can be especially crucial in the case of an elbow injury, given the great complexity of this joint, which consists of three bones – the humerus, the radius and ulna. Invest in a DryPro broken elbow cast cover, and you can be sure of giving your elbow the protection that it so greatly needs as it heals.
