This course describes the basic biomechanics of the throwing elbow and the clinical aspects of valgus extension overload. The biomechanics of the throwing athlete are frequently used to evaluate different elbow injury mechanisms. Overuse injuries in younger athletes are becoming more prevalent. Clinicians and physicians should recognize physical exam findings and adaptive changes to the throwing elbow. Different surgical treatments and rehabilitation protocols were discussed to best ensure optimal healing. As research on UCL treatments and elbow mechanisms continues to grow clinicians will have more treatment options to utilize in the sports medicine setting.
