Over the course of my life I have dislocated my left elbow three times, fractured it once. I was told I need to have reconstruction, but tried rehab instead. My biggest fear now is when I fall and need to catch myself with my left arm, especially falling backwards, my elbow will pop. I was looking at elbow pads...something I have never worn. I need a pad that will both protect the elbow itself but also help prevent my arm from over extending. Anybody have any experience with this?
