    and biomechanics of the UCL in overhead throwing sports is imperative.” The anterior bundle of the UCL is particularly susceptible to injury. The study by Awh (2010) reports that, “These injuries are often associated with those of the flexor pronator muscle-tendon unit, a stabilizer at the medial elbow. Strains and/or fatigue of the dynamic stabilizers may cause increased tears of the UCL.” The posterior bundle of the UCL is not as vulnerable for injury since it does not play a large role in the

    The deep digital flexor muscle is a long and strong muscle that originates from the humerus and attaches on to the palmar aspect of the distal phalanx. It is made up of three different muscle heads that comes together at the level of the carpus to form one common tendon. The three different heads are the humeral head, the ulnar head and the radial head. The humeral head origins from the medial epicondyle of the humerus.

    Posterior Muscles Originating Above the Knee The popliteus muscle is a minor flexor of the knee. It penetrates the joint capsule to find its origin on the lateral condyle of the femur, and passes obliquely to insert on the medio-proximal tibia. Its main function is to help stabilize the knee, but is also able to rotate the femur on the tibia to unlock the knee. Two other muscles have origin above the knee. The gastrocnemius muscle is a rather large muscle that has two heads of origin above the

The flexor retinaculum is attached to the pisiform and hamate carpal bone on the medial side of the wrist and stretched across towards the scaphoid and trapezium carpal bone on the lateral side, forming an arch. Inside the tunnel is the medial nerve and nine extrinsic flexor muscle tendons: the flexor digitorum profundus, the flexor digitorum superficialis and the flexor pollicis
