Ulnar Collateral Ligament

AKA UCL

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.

WHEN does it hurt?

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

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.


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.
