The end of the humerus at the elbow gets displaced (subluxated?
by leaving the cavity of the ulna. Such luxations readily yield to
reduction, if applied before the parts get inflamed. The displacement
for the most part is to the inside, but sometimes to the outside,
and they are readily recognized by the shape of the limb. And often
such luxations are reduced without any powerful extension. In dislocations
inward, the joint is to be pushed into its place, while the fore-arm
is brought round to a state of pronation. Such are most of the dislocations
at the elbow.
