The human body's ability to heal, and its ability to reach feats far beyond what our minds can comprehend is incredible. As physical therapists and experts in movement, we see the whole spectrum of movement on a daily basis. From those limited by chronic pain and disability to athletes bringing their bodies to the highest possible capacity, and everything in between.
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.
