Elbow Fracture - Turnbuckle Splint

This young man sustained an elbow fracture. He had been attending Physiotherapy for 6 weeks, but he was still unable to fully extend his elbow. He was referred to me to resolve the elbow fxed flexion deformity. I provided him with a turnbuckle splint. After 5 days we had almost fully resolved the flexion deformity. By providing a dynamic elbow extension splint, he is able to make gains on a daily basis until his next hand therapy appointment.
