With baseball season starting soon, we can start to expect to have some throwing related injuries affecting the elbow and shoulder.
Before experiencing pain, decreasing performance and frustration, take the time to review this blog from Mike Reinold discussing his throwing warm up. The video is only a couple of minutes long and explains his entire warm up process before starting a throwing program.
This information is invaluable for throwing athletes and will help keep their shoulders healthy throughout the season.
As with most injuries, the main problem is increasing activity too quickly and not giving your body a chance to adapt. Take the time to strengthen, warm up properly and limit your hard throws early in the season so you can throw hard at the end of the season.
