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.

Learning Goals

Upon successful completion of this webinar, the participants will be able to: 

  • Understand the anatomy and biomechanics of the elbow and, specifically, the UCL
  • Develop an understanding of the mechanics of various UCL injuries 
  • Design an effective and appropriate rehabilitation program based on current clinical and scientific research for the following isolated UCL injury
  • Differentiate post-op rehab protocols for different types of UCL surgeries
Behavioral Objectives

Upon completion, the participant will be able to:

  1. Upon completion of the course, the participant will be able to develop a protocol for an examination for the UCL patient using 3 techniques from the Valgus Stress Test. 
  2. For the athlete engaged in overhead activities who has a UCL lesion, describe 4 recommendations for non-operative rehabilitation.
  3. Develop a muscular strength training program for an athlete following UCL reconstruction.
