    Elbow Locked

    I broke my arm (left humerus) 6 weeks ago http://forums.steroid.com/showthread.php?t=319348
    yesterday the doc removed my cast my elbow was locked at 90 degree but after stretching it last night I can now move it more comfortably but still not like the other arm, what can I do to unlock my elbow faster? is there special topical creams or exercises to help me ?

    It takes time! Do light weights twice a week for that area for about 3 sets. I went through the same scenario after popping my bicep tendon doing rest-pause training (NEVER AGAIN!). It took me about 6 months before I could fully extend my arm.

    actually its getting better, after stretching all the day now I can reach the back of my neck and my shoulder is more flexible, I will wait a week before going to rehab.
