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. Parents are worried about their child “falling behind” and losing participation opportunities – but they may want to think about whether or not this punishing schedule is destroying their child’s long-term ability to participate at all.

Four Measures to Prevent Little League Elbow

Posted by NAIOMT on Apr 28, 2016 9:28:35 PM

Elbow injuries are typically seen in baseball and tennis players because of repetitive throwing or swinging motions. The problem arises in these athletes from the inflammation and deterioration of ligaments and tendons because of repetitive stress and or kinetic chain weak links.

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.
