It depends on the context. For Step 2 CK there can be no single right answer but it will depend on the scenario provided in the question stem.
For example, Reassurance is the right answer in an infant and immobilization, splinting, physical therapy is the right answer in a bigger child as well as an adult.

In that case I would go with UW QID: 4223--Reassurance

Kaplan surgery notes also agrees with reassurance due to the reason K6100 stated, eventho some people rather treat the condition.

Also erb-duchenne palsy? sometimes they state it heals on their own and sometimes they put rehabilitation? what to choose?
