Many parents support their kids in playing a sport year-round with little to no down time. No down time means an increased risk of injury.

Treating The Throwing Athlete

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

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.
