Your Health, Objectively. Treating Everyone Right.
In case you missed it, Part 1 of our panel series on baseball explored the different signs that your child may be playing through pain. In addition, the panel discussed some of the short-term vs. long-term ramifications that the demands of modern day showcase tournaments and travel schedules can place on developing ligaments and muscles. What we’ve concluded is that these impacts can oftentimes be avoided with proper training and education.
This week Dr. Richard Lehman, Medical Director at U.S. Center for Sports Medicine is joined again by our panel of baseball players (collegiate and professional), DPTs, and sports medicine experts to discuss common injuries for pitchers (all levels) taking the mound. We are joined by Zack Kelly, native of Roanoke, VA, who has spent time in the minor league systems for the Oakland Athletics and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Zach is currently recovering from Tommy John surgery and shares his experiences pitching from youth levels all of the way through the professional ranks.
Our special guest panel also includes:
- Dr. Rick Lehman, Director of U.S. Center for Sports Medicine + CEO LehmanHealth
- Dalton Schumer, DPT – CORA Arnold (Missouri)
- James Silvestri, PT, MDT – Senior Clinic Manager (Tennessee)
