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.

PT for a safe return to throwing?

It can take some time to heal from a throwing-related injury. Many patients go through weeks of physical therapy just to find relief from the pain and discomfort. Understandably, patients are impatient to return to throwing, whether for sports games or everyday activities.

However, stressing an arm, shoulder, or back too soon can easily reaggravate the injury and set back recovery. If a patient returns to the throwing activity that caused the injury, they are more likely to experience the same issue all over again — especially if they don’t have a clear understanding of what they were doing wrong the first time around.

That is why it’s strongly advised that patients continue to work with a physical therapist to return to throwing, even if their pain and stiffness has subsided. Post-rehab physical therapists specialize in helping patients safely ease back into their typical throwing activities while avoiding mishaps and further injury.

The most common reasons for seeking therapy before you return to throwing include:

  • Previous injury
  • Poor throwing form
