Throwing Clinic

 

The Throwing Clinic is a sports performance program for all overhead athletes with a focus on baseball and softball.  Participation is open to middle school through high school athletes and their parents/coaches. This is an annual clinic that we usually put on in our large Sports Physical Therapy Gym at Medical Plaza – Miller.  The last few years we have held it in November so athletes can put injury prevention and conditioning principals into effect during the offseason. 

 

We educate athletes and parents about some of the common causes for injury during overhead movements, such as core weakness, muscle imbalances, or incomplete strength and flexibility training. Most of the clinic is “hands-on” with activities including work on core muscle control, balance, hip and leg strengthening, scapular strengthening, rotator cuff exercises, and trunk and shoulder flexibility. There is also a short, informative presentation with time for questions.  The sports performance clinic is generally 2 hours on a Saturday morning and offered for a minimal fee. These clinics are usually scheduled during the winter, to help encourage better preparation for spring sports.
