My son will be turning 14, has been complaining on and off about a 'shock' type pain in his throwing arm. This happens only when he throws hard, and not every time he throws, but more often that not, and at least for the past 2 years of Travel Ball.
I have tried to get a better understanding of what exactly he means by shock, wither he means shooting pain? or throbbing pain? but the answer is always 'shocking pain' and not shooting/throbbing pain. He gets a 'shock' around his elbow area starting 2 inches above the elbow (midway to shoulder) and 2 inches below say midway down his arm forearm. Like I stated it only happens when he throws hard and lasts for a few minutes after. The after pain according to him is also very painful. Over the past 2 years we have cut his pitching down tremendously but he has been throwing a practice ball pin with his pitching instructor once a week and long toss. When this pain happens it happens both with long toss and pitching.
I am taking him to a sports physiotherapist to get checked out.
Wanted to get opinions from the forum members.
Thanks in advance.
