Abstract

Pulled elbow is a common injury in young children. Reduction of a pulled elbow is a simple and benign intervention that can be performed in an outpatient setting with rapid results. Some studies have shown that the hyperpronation method is more effective than supination and may be less painful.5,6 Clinicians should be competent in treating this common pediatric injury.
