Study: Physical therapy lacks benefit in children with supracondylar humeral fracture
A short course of physical therapy did not help return function or elbow motion in children undergoing closed treatment of a supracondylar humeral fracture, according to study results. The study included 61 patients with supracondylar humeral fracture treated with either casting or closed reduction and pinning followed by casting. The patients were randomly assigned to receive either no further treatment or six sessions of a standardized hospital-based physical therapy program.
