Ulnar Collateral Ligament Reconstruction (UCLr) also known as Tommy John Procedure is an injury often seen in overhead athletes and Nevada Physical Therapy has been the region’s premier choice for managing these athletes back to their prior level of activity for decades. Having a clinician who works closely with the surgeon and the athlete to create a program focused on protecting the repair, optimizing mobility and function, and later, ensuring an appropriate training program is established to get these athletes back to their sport is essential. Goals of getting full extension back early to minimize scar tissue formation, building a secondary training program to maintain physical conditioning and energy system development, and setting a clear path to returning to sport are some of the things you can expect during your time at Nevada Physical Therapy.
The elbow is put under considerable strain when throwing or hitting at full intensity and building strength appropriate for the individual’s sporting demands can make all the difference in their ability to return to elite performance. From high school pitchers to professional athletes, we have the experience, knowledge, and equipment to maximize these outcomes. If you or your loved one has recently had an ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) reconstruction and would like to speak with a physical therapist about how we can help, we offer free phone consultations! With the right care and guidance, athletes having had Tommy John surgery can come back stronger than before.
Nick was so attentive to my needs and he structured his schedule to fit mine. My therapy was focused on my strengths and weaknesses; therefore, my recovery time was much shorter than expected. I highly recommend Nevada Physical Therapy for any lingering pain you may be experiencing.Read More Reviews

The best Physical Therapy place I have ever visited. Rare to see an emphasis on finding the best method to improve injury instead of giving everyone the same plan. But the best part about this place is it's approach to well being during and after PT.Read More Reviews
I was referred to Brian Fearnley by someone with significant credibility. I consider working with Brian a huge stroke of luck. This specific 'PT' is increasing my recovery potential a hundred fold. Brian knows his stuff. He is well versed in PT. He has athletic history at UNR and is active in our local community. He is clearly in this profession to help people recover and get under their own power.Read More Reviews
