    it’s a mild dislocation/subluxation of the radial head. With a reduction maneuver proformed by a medial specalist, the radial head can be reduced. NO permanent problems are associated with nursemaids elbow.

    Occassionaly, it can become a recurrent problem. Then a cast can be applied for 1 month which allows the tissues to heal.
