How physical therapy can help patients return to throwing
When patients experience a painful throwing injury, like a tendon or rotator cuff tear, a physical therapist will work with them to ensure the injury heals correctly. At this point, many patients will believe they are ready to get back in the game. However, the truth is that stepping up to pitch too soon could quickly land you back in the PT’s office.
This stage of the recovery process is critical for preventing reinjury. Patients should continue to work with a physical therapist who can advise you on proper form and offer techniques to ensure a seamless and safe return to throwing.
What your routine will look like as you return to throwing
A post-rehab specialist can help patients return to throwing with a personalized routine. Whether you’re a professional athlete or just want to ensure mobility, our PTs take your injury, age, and lifestyle into account as they design your healing process. Post-rehab specialists focus on improving your range of motion and increasing your muscle strength. They will both analyze and correct your throwing technique to ensure you’re on the right track.
By working closely with a qualified PT, patients should be able to return to throwing without pain — and without risking reinjury. Whether you’re a professional pitcher or just want to play catch with your kids, the right PT can ensure you return to throwing without a relapse down the road.
