Many baseball injuries are cumulative and result from overuse of the shoulder, elbow, and wrist. This is probably not surprising when you consider the amount of throwing, catching, and bat-swinging movements the average player makes during each game – and season. Specifically, the pitching motion is one of the fastest and most forceful maneuvers that a joint in the body can be subjected to, and shoulder pain can arise during any of its six phases: wind-up, early cocking/stride, late cocking, acceleration, deceleration, and follow-through.
As such, some of the more common baseball injuries include:
- Rotator cuff tears
- Impingement syndrome
- Shoulder instability
- Tendonitis of the shoulder
- Bursitis of the shoulder or elbow
- Golfer’s elbow
- Tennis elbow
- Medial ligament tears
Whether you play for the New York Yankees or the Tampa Bay Little League, you can trust the sports medicine specialists at Tampa Orthopaedic to treat your baseball injuries and get you off the injured list and back out on the diamond. We’ll help with strategies to protect you from overuse injuries, and diagnose and manage those injuries when they do occur.
