PHILADELPHIA — To identify the source of shoulder pain in a throwing athlete, orthopedists should study the athlete’s injury history and kinetic chain, according to a presenter here.
In his presentation at the Advances in Throwing Symposium, Brian J. Sennett, MD, said when working with throwing athletes, orthopedists should understand the phases of throwing and where the athlete is having problems in the phases. However, orthopedists should not only focus on the examination, but inquire about any other recent injuries the patient has had, he added.
