Preventing Adolescent Pitching injuries
September 9, 2011
This is a recent article from the American Orthopedic Society for Sports Medicine. A lot of parents have been bringing in their children with shoulder and arm pain. Mostly this is because of repetitive throwing without adequate preparation and resolves with rest, ice, antiinflammatory medication and exercise. I recommend that you read this article and it will help you and your child understand the underlying problem and some of the solutions. As always I am here to answer your questions on how we can prevent this from happening next year.
