66 patients with post-traumatic elbow stiffness were randomized to receive either static progressive or dynamic splinting. The results from a 12 month follow-up indicated that there were no significant differences in flexion arc or DASH scores. Thus, the results of this study find that there were no significant differences in improvements in range of motion between the two groups.
