Welcome at HCM.

If your bones has properly united & there is no abnormality at that area then for limitation of movement you should do physiotherapy under supervision of a physiotherapist.This may some time take time.If it is taking more then 6 weeks then consult to your doctor & have evaluation by X RAY OR MRI.

Hope this will help you.

With best wishes.
