Ulnar Collateral Ligament

What is it?

The ulnar collateral ligament is a band of tissue that connects the inside of your upper arm to the inside of your forearm. This ligament helps to support and stabilize your arm when you perform a motion such as throwing a ball.

Why do I have it?

Over time and with repetitive stress the UCL can become stretched and even tear. Trauma can also cause damage such as a fall, car accident or blunt force.

When does it hurt?

Usually hurts during sport or any other activity that resembles overhead motion such as throwing or volleyball movements.

The Bracing Experts Advice:

Usually a hinged brace to protect the ligament and possibly even an immobilizer if serious enough. Treating the injury with a brace would be similar to treating a knee ligament injury. Our Bracing Experts can get you the right brace.
