I'm new here and actually found this site when searching for broken arm and gymnastics. It's been great to read the stories about kids coming back strong and motivated from injuries. My DD broke her humerus bone right above the elbow. She is 8 years old, level 5. She had surgery, pins placed, and has been full arm casted for 3 weeks. She has been to every practice but with strict doctors instructions for no exercise due to sweating under the cast and pin movement (they protrude about a 1/2 inch through the skin). So it's been alot of watching, walking through the floor routine and being frustrated. Cast comes off and pins come out soon with additional instructions of "no real activities for the first month otherthan working on gentle range of motion." While I realize that means no weight bearing arm activities, I am hoping we will get the ok for at least conditioning. Does anyone have any programs, videos, links, etc. to a conditioning program that is broken arm suitable. I assume lower body and abs are the focus. I want to have her start working on some things at home on her mat slowly and then in the gym. She is hoping to compete in January. I told her not to get her hopes up and that we are taking it one day at a time, but I am sure parents of gymnastics know how hard that is to tell your kid. Thanks.
