Why you need sports therapy for your throwing injury

Sports therapy is a type of therapy that is commonly used to treat professional, amateur and recreational athletes with a variety of injuries. One of the injuries that this type of therapy may help treat is a throwing injury.

Throwing injuries affect baseball players, especially pitchers, and athletes from other sports, such as quarterbacks. These injuries are a real risk if you’re playing a sport that involves throwing a ball often at high speeds and/or over long distances.

Many throwing injuries are caused by the combination of extreme forces acting on all the parts of your arm during throwing motions. Other throwing injuries may be caused by improper throwing techniques, inadequate warm-up time or a lack of training.

Depending on the cause of your throwing injury, you may be required to undergo surgery and physical therapy to repair the damage to your arm.

Excel Sports and Physical Therapy is here for you when a throwing injury puts you on the sidelines. Our personalized recovery plans can help you with your throwing injury by:

  • Using strengthening exercises on the affected area
  • Helping you increase your range of motion
  • Educating you in proper throwing techniques to help reduce the stress on your arm

Through the use of treatments like these, our Excel Sports and Physical Therapy sports therapists can design a therapy plan for you that may help you to manage your pain, get back to playing faster and reduce your risk of injury in the future.
