Treating The Throwing Athlete

Posted by NAIOMT on Nov 4, 2015 3:49:28 PM

Baseball and softball players (and other overhead throwing athletes) are unique and require special characteristics to allow them the mobility and stability to perform their sport. And there are considerable anatomical and biomechanical kinetic chain concepts that a physical therapist must understand to treat them appropriately. That's why we developed our new overhead thrower’s course, Advanced Concepts for the Overhead Athlete, designed specifically for physical therapists interested in treating these types of athletes.

The course will be held in Colorado Springs, Colorado on July 16-17 and will be taught by Major League Baseball's Washington Nationals lead physical therapist and North American Institute of Orthopedic Manual Therapy guest faculty  Angela GordonPT, DSc, MPT, COMT, OCS, ATC, FMS. For more on her background ready her PT Profile!

In addition to diving into details relating to function, Dr. Gordon will incorporate video analysis, breakdown of the pitcher’s mechanics, and live demonstration of an overhead athlete evaluation. Reserve your spot here and browse other upcoming manual therapy opportunities across the country here.
