Arm rehabilitation begins shortly after initial treatment or surgery. In most cases, it's important to begin some motion to minimize stiffness in the arm, hand and shoulder while you're still wearing your cast or custom fabricated splint. Once your cast or sling is removed, additional rehabilitation exercises or occupational hand therapy will be prescribed to restore muscle strength, joint motion and flexibility.

Many things can cause elbow pain and reduce mobility. Among the most common is tendinitis which is an inflammation or injury to the tendons that anchor to bone at the elbow. Generally, tendinitis is a sports related injury often experienced by golfers and tennis players. Repetitive activities that involve the elbow can also result in tendinitis. Other causes of elbow injury include strains, dislocations, sprains, arthritis and bursitis.
