For Baseball and Softball Athletes
Injuries in baseball are common and can be difficult to manage. Most baseball injuries occur at the shoulder and elbow.
Throwing injuries, especially overuse injuries, are on the rise. These muscle/tendon injuries often occur when the arm performs “too much” or returns “too soon” after throwing. The result can be tendonitis (inflammation of the tendon), ligament disruption, or potential injury to the growth plate in younger athletes. Injury also may be the result of using faulty throwing mechanics. Adequate rest and rehabilitation will effectively return the thrower to their sport.
Our team of medical professionals is highly experienced in dealing with such injuries at all levels. No two injuries are the same and we address each one individually. Our strength lies in investigating how the injury occurred, correcting the problem and preventing future disability.
