TRAINING LADDER FOR CHILDREN AND ADOLESCENTS: FOR DISCLOCATION OF THE ELBOW (LUXATIO ARTICULI CUBITI)
This rehabilitation program should only be considered in connection with an uncomplicated dislocation of the elbow, that has not required surgery. The rehabilitation to be followed must be agreed with your doctor if complications have arisen in the form of, for example, bone fracture, vascular damage or nerve damage.
Unlimited: Cycling. Running. Swimming.
Stand in a doorframe. Press your arms against the frame so that the front of your shoulders become increasingly stretched. Move your arms up and down the doorframe so that different parts of your muscles are stretched. Hold the position for 20 seconds and relax for 20 seconds before repeating.
Stand with your hands together behind your back. Draw your shoulder blades together (imagine trying to hold a pencil between your shoulder blades). Hold the position for 10 seconds and rest for 10 seconds before repeating.
Seesaw. Balance on two legs, possibly using a hand as support against the wall, balancing subsequently on one leg without support. Look straight ahead and keep knees bent.
Stand and bounce a ball on the floor backwards and forwards from the injured to the good hand.
Support with both hands against a wall. Move slowly towards the wall and push away again. The exercise is performed like standing push-ups.
Hold an elastic band in the good arm. Take hold of the other end of the elastic with the injured arm and draw the injured arm downwards.
Put the elastic under your foot, and with the injured arm draw the other end upwards by bending your arm.
Stand with your side against a wall. Hold the elastic with the injured arm with elbow bent, upper arm 90 degrees away from your body and your hand at shoulder height. The palm of your hand should face the floor. Drawn your arm downwards and in front of your stomach.
Hold the elastic with the injured arm with elbow bent and your hand at shoulder level. Stretch your arm forwards so that the elastic is tightened.
Stretching is carried out in the following way: stretch the muscle group for 3-5 seconds. Relax for 3-5 seconds. The muscle group should subsequently be stretched for 20 seconds. The muscle is allowed to be tender, but must not hurt. Relax for 20 seconds, after which the procedure can be repeated.
The time consumed for stretching, coordination and strength training can be altered depending on the training opportunities available and individual requirements.
