Abstract:
The following case review discusses a javelin athlete undergoing rehabilitation for an ulnar collateral ligament injury. The ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) of the elbow is a frequently injured structure in the overhead throwing athlete. In critically reviewing the case, the athlete did not go through a sport specific rehabilitation throwing program. A javelin interval throwing program, that has been preliminarily reviewed but requires further research and validation, is compared to a validated baseball interval throwing program. Baseball throwing programs have been utilized and reviewed. The javelin athlete should go through a similar throwing program specific to javelin athletes.
