Overhead Throwers

Treatment for upper arm and shoulder injuries

Athletes depend on strength, flexibility and mobility to perform at their best. A breakdown in an athlete’s movement patterns can lead to injury.

Movement screen and biomechanical analysis

Throwing, pitching, swimming – each of these activities can put stress on the shoulder, specifically to the area that stabilizes and centers the shoulder within the socket. As a result, shoulder injuries can occur abruptly or may develop over time in athletes who train with high intensity.
