Re: gymnast elbow

My daughter sustained a broken elbow with muscle and tendon tears after 7 months she was able to return to her full gymnastics workout. Now she has pain and mild swelling at the joint. She is being treated with anti-inflamatory med. and rest. Since this joint sustained such a severe injury I know it is now weakened. Her current diag. is bruised cartiledge. Is there a brace that could help protect her elbow but still allow the range of motion she needs for bars,vault and tumbling
