Sports Physical Therapy in Bergen County NJ

If you didn’t happen to catch what happened to Dan Winkler, the pitcher of the Atlanta Braves, this past weekend you can probably find a video online. Unfortunately, you may find the video a little difficult to watch. Immediately after Winkler tosses the pitch, he left the mound because he is in excruciating pain. The pain was diagnosed as a facture to his elbow. This news is the last thing Winkler or Atlanta Braves fans want to hear as it is an injury that will likely keep him from pitching for the remainder of the season. If it is not treated and cared for properly, it could be the end of his entire baseball career.

The act of throwing something is one of the fastest movements that the human body is capable of doing. Apparently the angular velocity of a pitcher’s elbow is greater than 3,000 degrees per second during every single pitch. Imagine rotating your arm 360 degrees 20 times in a single second, this is what that motion does to your arm. Now imagine being a person who pitches several times during one day for multiple games during a season. With this information, it is certainly no surprise as to why pitchers sustain so many injuries and develop so many needs for surgeries.
