What is an Ulnar Ligament Injury?
The UCL is a small triangular ligament that connects the ulna (wrist bone) to the humerus (upper arm) and prevents the elbow from bending too far to either side. This ligament is especially important for athletes whose positions require an overhand throwing motion as it allows for control and torque.
