Stresses on elbow during pitching may alter multiple structures
October 12, 2015

In a pre- and post-season ultrasound evaluation of high school pitchers’ elbows, adaptive changes occurred to multiple structures about the elbow from stresses placed on the elbow during one season of pitching, based on results of a recently published study.

After a 2-month period of relative arm rest, researchers evaluated 22 high school pitchers through results of preseason physical exams, dynamic ultrasound imaging of their throwing elbow and QuickDASH scores. Within 1 week of their last game, the patients were re-evaluated.
