The #1 Strength technique to prevent Arm Injury

DrChrisMcKenzie ·
Do you have a Superior Labrum Anterior to Posterior (SLAP) tear? Do you want to know how to prevent a SLAP tear, Elbow pain, or any significant injury from happening as a baseball player? Enter Chris, a 15y/o left handed pitcher who was throwing good heat for his age (sitting in the low 80's) without any formal pitcher training. Chris began developing a painful pinch on the back of shoulder early in the Spring of 2014 in the late cocking position. This pain eventually brought him to my...

Rotator repair and catcher

My son is actually in his 1st yr of JUCO, a catcher. Led the nation for a time for most homeruns, settled at #7 after his arm got to bad to play. Appeared he was being drafted, met with team several times, negotiated an offer...on/off shoulder problems since 9th grade. Missed his jr year with ulnar transposition surgery. Had a great sr year, but towards end shoulder pain increased. Dx with tendonitis (altho they did no testing). Tried to rehab that summer but pain continued. As mentioned, he...

I have not gone and seen my doctor. Don't want to be done for the season. And the pain is not all the time when I throw. But i throw more times with pain then without.

I would strongly recommend seeing a doctor. Consistent pain when throwing indicates a problem. Your body is sending a message. Don't ignore it.

You definitely should seek medical attention. Do you have a trainer at school? At kids school they would get you evaluated by tye trainer first, then if necessary send you to the ortho. On the positive side, since you have pain in several locations it would seem like general irritation and inflammation. Not some thing catastrophic like ucl tear. Get it checked out and let the pros guide you. Good luck.

When it hurts, shut it down. You only have one throwing arm, when it's gone, so are you. Talk to your coach, athletic trainer, or doctor. Short term disruptions should not derail your long term plans, but they might if you wait too long.

Wesley, From following your posts, I know that you've been extremely dedicated and worked hard to earn an opportunity to play at the next level. You REALLY need to follow the advice given, even if it means that you need to rest (best case) and miss some or all of this season. This pain is significant enough to cause you concern. If it's simply inflammation and not an injury, you run the risk of injury by compensating with improper mechanics or simply the fatigue. If it is injury, then you...

Sorry to hear this and I wish him well. I'll try to give you a summarized version of my son's situation and hopefully it will provide some light at the end of the tunnel (the long version can be found here ). Everyone's journey is different, of course, and your son's injury is more severe than my son's, but the surgery and rehab process is likely very similar. My son, who is also a catcher, graduates from HS this year and tore his labrum sometime last summer. I say "sometime" because we...

Tequila- sounds as if your son has recovered well. Your story did indeed offer some extra hope, although one difference is that my son's labrum tear ended up being secondary (despite the MRI which clearly showed a significant labrum tear), his surgeon ended up discovering a full thickness rotator tear. He actually apologized for having to give us some unexpected and disappointing news. Think the worse part, is that one, this his second surgery (ulnar nerve transposition in his jr year),...

Ended up being both a SLAP 3 tear AND a full thickness rotator tear, but despite issues with insurance covering PT and the therapist feeling that PT once every three weeks was perfectly a sound decision, he is doing pretty well. We moved him near his college, so he is now working with both a new PT (self-pay) and his trainer 5 days per week. They say he is ahead of schedule. I think he can begin to lightly toss a ball at 4m. Right now, its crucial he is careful, as re-injury can occur...

Los Angeles 2021 Parent- Apologize if this is sent wrong. Not most computer illiterate. How did your son fair with his surgery? My son is nearly six months out and is doing very well. We secured him an apartment near his surgeon and his school so that he can do PT 1x wk and work with his trainer (who also works at the PT prgm) 5x week. He is doing alot of cardio and lower body workouts, lost nearly 20 lbs which initially scared me. I was afraid he would not be as strong of a hitter at 199...

Today is 1 month since surgery. Took the sling off toady! Rehab is mostly range of motion at this point. We did get the wedge pillow! Thanks for the suggestion. Too early to say if rehab is on track or behind. That is great to hear your son is doing so well. PT is a family friend and is well acquainted with baseball rehab so that’s great—my advice is PT can vary quite a bit and we are glad to have a sport-specialist. Now if we could only get our insurance company to agree! The PT that was...

Sounds like he is doing well, great news. Funny you mentioned PT, as you know we had all kinds of issues w/that. We continue to pay out of pocket, but it's been worth it. Right now, he is followed closely by surgeon, PT and trainer. He has a very strict regime to follow, told us today he started doing push ups. Having not only a sport-specific PT, but a friend, is great, as he will always have your son's best interest in heart. Sure he'll be out enjoying some late Spring/early summer ball...

It is a long slow recovery process. 9 months to a year. My deepest sympathies over your injury. Michael Pineda came back from it. Despite the headline of the article below, it doesn't have to be a career ender. http://gargoyle.flagler.edu/20...f-most-debilitating/ http://bleacherreport.com/arti...alls-toughest-injury

Are you talking about if you have surgery or no surgery? And are you talking about SLAP tear because a SLAP tear and a Posterior labrum tear is different

Posterior Labrum Tear, after surgery. The articles I linked have some good info, but by no means are the only opinion
