Symptom #2: Swelling

When we pick up an injury that is severe enough, we will often go to a hospital or at least see a doctor. They will help to repair damage and help to ensure we make a full recovery. As much as medical professionals do help, though, most of the healing is done by the body itself.

If you do experience a broken elbow, the body will set about fixing it as soon as possible. This will result in a swelling as materials and white blood cells are sent to the area. The swelling will begin straightaway and can remain for several days or even longer depending on the extent of the injury.
