Non-operative Ulnar Collateral Ligament (UCL)

Initial treatment includes rest from the sport or offending activity coupled with ice and anti-inflammatories (if your medical history allows it). A brace or supportive device may also allow functional motion without stressing the injured ligament. Non-operative treatment may allow many non-athletes or sedentary workers to return to routine activities.  This often includes a structured physical therapy program to restore elbow range of motion and strength and return to sports over a three to four month period.
