My 18 year old daughter has a shortened ulna bone. It pops out and makes her arm swelllup. She tried to play softball but everytime she throws the ball the wrist pops out. We have gotten an MRI but it showed no tear. She is leaving for college soon and is worried her future career in nursing is going to be a problem with as much weight as nurses have to put on their hands and arms. The arm is just not as strong as the other. She broke it twice when she was younger and the last doctor we saw said it grew that way. I need help in what to do or not to do.
