1 hour

Quick Overview

Presented by: Kevin Wilk

This presentation will cover UCL injuries and effective rehab protocols for both non-operative and post-operative cases.

Description

The number of ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) injuries has increased in recent years. This is likely due to the repetitive high stress forces in overhead athletes such as pitchers, but these injuries are also found in other sports such as javelin throwers and ballistic sports such as gymnastics or football. This presentation will cover UCL injuries and effective rehab protocols for both non-operative and post-operative cases.
