dislocated elbow

I was trying to do an L-sit on parallettes today and I had my elbows hyperextended, and dislocated my left elbow. The radius bone popped out and looked pretty jacked up, but when I straightened my arm it popped back in. It's a bit sore and stiff right now, but I was able to (with great care and very deliberate movements) complete my workout without much difficulty. I haven't decided yet whether I will go to the doctor, since I'm not sure they could do anything for me anyway short of surgery, and I don't want to go that route. I would like some advice for care and recovery following something like this. This is the first time I've ever hurt an elbow and I have no experience here.
