Throwing athletes are at risk for injury. This increased risk is, in part, due to the incredible forces applied to the arm during throwing. Proper rehabilitation not only includes improving strength and range of motion, but also education and instruction in proper throwing mechanics to reduce stress on the arm.
Continuum Wellness uses the latest research in all of our rehabilitation plans. A throwing athlete will be evaluated from head to toe to determine the factors that contributed to the injury. Video analysis is sometimes used to evaluate a thrower’s mechanics in order to ensure proper use of the body during throwing.
