UCL pronator strain refers to an injury that occurs after the arm is moved from the upward-facing position to the downward-facing position, such as those made when throwing, hitting, swinging, lifting, or making overhead motions. Pain from a UCL strain will be located on the inside (medial side) of the elbow. Symptoms of UCL injuries include pain when flexing, closing, or clenching the fist as well as tingling, numbness, swelling, a slight loss of motion, and decreased power when pronating the arm. Feeling a popping sensation immediately after a UCL injury occurs is also fairly common.
The RapidForce® L Shape (inner right arm) and Reverse L Shape (inner left arm) is designed to reduce UCL pain, particularly pain resulting from overuse or over-pronation. The L Shape’s central core is adhered to the skin directly above the inner edge of the elbow bone, supporting and stabilizing the injury. Two arms—one shorter and one longer—are stretched outwards, creating additional structural support along the bend of the elbow. The resulting mechanical support shares the body’s workload, giving the sore or injured area relief to reduce inflammation and swelling and encourage the circulation of blood, oxygen, fluid, and healing nutrients to the injury site.
