Pitching for Success
Pitcher’s often have muscle imbalances which predispose them to overuse injuries. These programs often can be avoided by a comprehensive strength and flexibility designed specifically for the pitcher.
This program will help you:
- Identify key areas of your body (shoulder, elbow, or hips) which may be inhibiting your ability to perform at an optimal level.
- Prevent overuse injuries by identifying specific flexibility and strength problems that affect your mechanics.
- Recover from an injury or surgery and return to play with more efficiency and a reduced risk of re-injury.
A video analysis of the pitcher’s throwing mechanics to look at five key areas of the delivery. Deficits in these areas have been associated with decreased power production and increased risk of injury.
A physical examination to assess the pitcher’s flexibility and strength of specific baseball muscles.
A performance training program with exercises to eliminate any deficiencies discovered during the examination.
Performance Enhancement Sessions
After the evaluation, you may arrange for performance enhancement sessions in a variety of ways. Each session consists of a one-hour supervised exercise program, including instruction in progression of the Pitching for Success program. Each session will focus on strength, flexibility, and proper mechanics.
LINK EVALUATION - What is it?
(Levels of Integrated Neuromuscular Kinematics)
The key is to reach athletes before they become injured and offer them state of the art training while trying to identify muscle imbalances that could lead to an injury.
How do tight hips limit speed and contribute to hamstring pulls and low back pain?
How do inflexible hamstring muscles affect the throwing shoulder of the pitcher?
How does a weak upper back affect the golf swing?
How do weak hips and flat feet put more stress on the knee and lead to knee injuries?
These are all questions that can be answered with the LINK evaluation. This evaluation is performed on every athlete that enters our Architech Sports and Physical Therapy facility.
