5 Examination Through Palpation Positional diagnosis of the radial head –Posterior vs Anterior Fluctuance –Fluid in the joint or bursa Tenderness -- Temperature Changes

6 Functional Examination Active Range of Motion Elbow Flexion and Extension –Forearm supination and pronation Look for: – Limitations of range of motion – Pain with motion
