  • Shoulder Pain in the Young Thrower
    • 13 year old pitcher
    • 4 weeks of worsening shoulder pain
    • Initially only with throwing hard
    • Now pain with throwing softly
  • Developmental Phases of Throwing Facing target – Push Facing target, Cocking, Toss Age 2

    • Appears at 1 year of age
    • Fuses between 15-19 years of age
    • Accounts for 80% of humeral growth
    • Adaptive remodeling increases external rotation, decreases internal rotation
  • Treatment: LLS
    • No throwing until pain free
    • Xray for initial evaluation, possibly if concern for growth arrest
    • Asses risk factors
    • Modify throwing mechanic ?
