Hi XXXXXXX and welcome to XXXXXXX
Thanks for posting your query.

It depends upon what type of fracture or injury you had got during accident and what is the present status and range of motion of elbow. I suggest you to get a recent xray done. You might need surgery or only physiotherapy to correct this.

You have a feature to upload the reports / image by yourself at the right side of the query page, please utilize that so that I can answer your queries better.

Hope this will help you.

Wishing you good health...
