Emma was playing last night, using that arm like normal, she was even more of a monkey like she was so thrilled to have her arm back to normal, I was sure she was determined to get hurt again though the way she was running and jumping around last night!! The doctor demonstrated to me how you pop it back in too because she said it's common for it to re-dislocate in the next couple of weeks, which I read online too.
This is what I found online...
Nursemaid's elbow is a common condition in young children and generally affectsAnyway, I'm glad Emma is ok & back to normal, we'll have to be careful with her arm to be sure she doesn't have it pop back out. But, also we'll be sure not to do any of that lifting her by the arms anymore!
children under age 5. The injury occurs when a child is pulled up too hard by
the hand or wrist. It is often seen after someone lifts a child up by one arm
up. (For example, when trying to lift the child over a curb or high step.)
Swinging a young child from the arms while playing can also cause this injury.
When the injury occurs, the child usually begins crying immediately and
refuses to use the arm. The child may hold the arm so that is slightly bent
(flexed) at the elbow and pressed up against the belly (abdominal) area. The
child will move the shoulder, but not the elbow. Some children stop crying as
the immediate pain goes away, but continue to refuse to move the elbow.
Once the elbow dislocates, it is likely to do so again, especially in
the 3 or 4 weeks following the injury.
Nursemaid's elbow does not
usually occur after age 5. By this time, a child's joints and surround
structures are stronger, and the child is less likely to be in a situation where
this injury might occur. However, in some cases, the injury can occur in older
children or adults, usually from a fracture of the forearm.
