What is a baseball specialist?

At BYoung Performance, our doctors of physical therapy and staff are experts when it comes to treating injuries that occur on the diamond. We deal with various injuries including the shoulder, elbow, back, and lower extremity, among many others. Our knowledge of the mechanics required in overhead sports provides us with an unparalelled ability to get you back to playing the game. We have rehabilitated countless baseball players from youth athletes to Major League Baseball players. Our experience and expertise working with this population has made us specialists in our field.

Our approach:

Poor mechanics and repetitive stress can produce dysfunction in various joints in the body. When these high-stress motions are done over and over, it can lead to a wide range of injuries. These types of injuries are often found in baseball pitchers, as well as, other overhead athletes.  Postural changes that lead to shoulder and elbow pain and dysfunction and can easily be corrected with the right treatment. We look at more than just the spot that is bothering you. We look at the athlete as a whole and find out how we can take stress away from that spot to aid in recovery and optimal performance.
