Pitching/Throwing Mechanical Assessments
Back, Neck, Shoulder, and Elbow problems are common for tennis players, throwers, volleyball players, golfers, swimmers and other “overhead athletes”. Upper body injuries and loss of performance (usually a loss of power) are often due to a myriad of factors. Problems with the spine or the lower extremity can lead to abnormal forces and eventually injury in the upper body as overhead movement repetitions increase. Common problems are impaired hip or spinal range of motion or an imbalance of flexibility in the upper body. Additionally, weakness in the core, hips, shoulder blades and cuff often lead to injury and/or a loss of performance.rotator
