hyperpronation for Nursemaid’s elbow

26 Nov

nice quick overview in a recent EP Monthly mag. Some quick pearls below:



  • one hand holding elbow at 90 degrees
  • other hand holds wrist
  • hyperpronate the wrist
  • voila!



couple small studies comparing hyperpronation technique vs. supination-flexion reduction

  • hyperpronation 94 & 96% successful in 2 studies
  • supination-flexion 68 & 69% successful in 2 studies



hyperpronation seems like a reduction method worth trying, seems pretty successful
