Baseball and softball are popular sports that involve repetitive motions such as throwing, hitting, and running, making them prone to specific injuries. Some common baseball/softball-specific injuries include rotator cuff tears, elbow ligament injuries, hamstring strains, ankle sprains, and hip injuries. These injuries can be caused by overuse, improper technique, or collisions with other players.
It is important to work with a rehabilitation specialist who understands the intricacies and mechanics of the sport to address these injuries. Dr. Poniros is a former collegiate baseball player himself, so he understands and has experienced firsthand what it takes to compete at a high level. Apollo Performance Chiropractic also maintains relationships with MLB orthopedists and has a partnership with the elite training facility, VeloU, so you can get the care you deserve in all aspects of your rehab. We also utilize strength testing and injury prevention formulas to ensure your treatment is customized and monitored at each and every turn.
You wouldn’t take your Ferrari to a Honda dealer would you? So don’t leave your arm care up to somebody who has limited experience treating throwing injuries. Working with a rehabilitation specialist who understands the specific demands of baseball/softball can help athletes recover from these injuries more quickly and effectively. Customized rehab plans can help players regain their strength, flexibility, and range of motion, allowing them to get back to the field with confidence.
