In brief: Yes

Yes, but this is not the definitive treatment.

In brief: Yes

In the acute phase of an elbow injury a sling may be used for comfort, but not for long.
Taking the extremity out of the sling and undergoing range of motion movements is imperative to fast healing, prevention of loss of movement, and strength. Dr. J.
