Ulnar collateral ligament injuries occur when repetitive stress damages the inside of the elbow. These injuries are common in “overhead” sports (e.i, volleyball, softball, tennis, etc.) which require repetitive stress and additional trauma to the area. Sometimes, surgical intervention may be necessary, but physical therapy will continue to be essential for your recovery.
Symptoms may include:
soreness along the inside of your elbow
swelling or bruising
possible numbness and tingling into the arm
instability at the elbow joint
pain when using the arm overhead
