Stiff Elbow flexion probl
I fell on snow taking sudden weight of my body on one hand. Late detection of fracture led to late mobilization exercises. It has led to stiff Elbow for which I am going through physiotherapy for last 2 months. Doctors say it is because of scar tissues around bone and weekness and stiffness in muscle. is surgery ??
