Stinks cuz I could gain my ROM back so much quicker with the device, but insurance prefers to pay up to $8000 in PT visits and prolong my recovery.
So I am wondering if this little contraption is worth me paying for it out of my pocket or if anyone has a used one for sale....
But expensive though!, could try if they rent them?
A meter of pipe (plumber) and same lenght of Theraband will also give your Dynamic Low Load Prolonged Stretch
In your case, I`m not sure what your ROM is (range of motion) fully extended is 0 degrees full flexion (about 145 degrees)
After 5 months I doubt if you will gain significanty, but it also depends on the "feel" bouncy has a better outcome than Hard.
Try it for a week (only if the ellbow isn`t warm or swollen)
