My elbow was moderately hyperextended in a basketball game four days ago. Now my elbow makes a mild clicking/popping when bending. What should I do?
Elbow Antics: You most likely injured the cartilage surface of this complex hinge joint and the associated inflammation is causing the clicking or popping that you appreciate. If the joint "locks" when attempting to move it you may have torn a small portion of the cartilage and it is catching in the joint space. Apply ice and try to adequately rest the elbow. Try an antiinflammatory if needed for pain. ...Read more
