PITCHING RECOVERY AND ARM CARE

Athletic Training and Conditioning, Inc. has developed a method of speeding up a baseball pitcher’s recovery after a game.  By spending less time recovering, pitchers can spend more time making adjustments between games. Better recovery doesn’t simply mean the pitcher is able to pitch more innings. Better recovery means better innings!

A pitcher’s body responds during a game by losing range of motion at the shoulder, elbow, chest, spine and hips. If left unaddressed, this can cause the pitcher’s performance to decrease over the course of a season and potentially lead to an overuse injury.

An effective pitching recovery and arm care program should go beyond ice packs and “band work”. A good active recovery program should focus on the following:

  • Circulation of fresh blood
  • Mobility restoration of the lower body
  • Mobility restoration of the trunk
  • Mobility restoration of the upper body
  • Unique needs of the individual pitcher

A pitcher should look for an active recovery and arm care program that:

  • Maximizes potential
  • Decreases deficiencies
  • Increases durability
  • Minimizes injuries

Athletic Training and Conditioning, Inc. has experience with addressing these issues in professional baseball pitchers and is available to assist our local college, high school, and middle school pitchers.
