elbow injuries in the throwing athlete
Overhand throwing places high levels of stress on the elbow, resulting in serious overuse injury. Baseball pitchers, tennis players, and other throwing athletes are prone to elbow injuries with their repetitive movements and lack of time to rest and heal.

Radial Head Fractures
Radial head fractures account for nearly 20% of all acute elbow injuries.
Robbie Ray Injury
Major League Baseball has started and injuries are already starting to pile up for pitchers. The Seattle Mariners announced that Robbie Ray has a left flexor strain, which is associated with the Ulnar Collateral Ligament. Although Robby Ray’s injury is a Level 1 strain, more severe injuries can lead to Tommy John Surgery. We hope for his speedy recovery!
