Your Health, Objectively. Treating Everyone Right.
Dr. Richard Lehman, Medical Director at U.S. Center for Sports Medicine hosts an important panel discussion on the topic of overuse injuries for baseball players. He is joined by a star-studded cast of collegiate and professional ball players and sports medicine experts with decades of experience in the clinic setting treating baseball athletes from youth baseball to the highest levels.
The current reality is that regular training regimens for players across the country have been severely impacted in recent months. And with that comes an increase in overuse injuries due to inadequate preparation or the inability to rebuild proper strength and function due to the demands of returning to competitive pre-COVID levels of play. Expectations have not changed, sometimes even accelerated to make up for lost time. In Part 1 of a two-part panel, we focus on youth baseball K-12 and little league players as travel baseball resumes and teams return to the diamond.
Our special guest panel 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)
- Tyler Kelly, PTA, ATC, VATL – Senior Clinic Manager (Virginia)
- Zack Kelly, Pitcher (MLB and MiLB)
Learn more about the types of injuries that we often see after months away from the field and how to prevent pain and injury, rebuild arm strength and find your groove. Our panel also addresses some of the different signs and symptoms that you can look for to quickly determine whether your child is playing through pain but not telling you.

Modern day showcase tournaments and travel team play often places unnecessary stress or strain on muscles and ligaments. The good news is that injury can be avoided with just a little bit of education and safety. Many times what can be avoided ends up having negative ramifications in the short-term and long-term on your kids’ dreams of playing collegiate or professional ball at the next level.
