Treating The Throwing Athlete

Baseball and softball players (and other overhead throwing athletes) are unique and require special characteristics to allow them the mobility and stability to perform their sport. And there are considerable anatomical and biomechanical kinetic chain concepts that a physical therapist must understand to treat them appropriately. That’s why we developed our new overhead thrower’s course, Advanced Concepts for the Overhead Athlete, designed specifically for physical therapists interested in treating these types of athletes.
