As the seasons change from winter to spring, there also comes a change in what sports we or our children will be involved in. When the baseball and softball season starts, our office begins to see one of the most common issues that develop from throwing -
. Shoulder pain is most likely caused by the repetitive motion and overuse of throwing a ball.
Overuse is the number one cause of throwing injuries.

pain in the shoulder
