Elbow Conditions

Pitcher’s Elbow

Pitcher’s elbow (medial apophysitis) occurs due to irritation on the inside portion of the elbow joint. It is common in young athletes and usually caused by overuse or repetitive strain such as: throwing a ball, during a time of rapid developmental growth- usually around ages 11-15 years.

Symptoms include:

  • increasing pain and soreness on the inside of your elbow joint during throwing activities
  • swelling, grip weakness
  • muscle cramping in the forearm
  • loss of motion at the elbow

A physical therapist will examine the joint and create a plan of care that best fits the client’s needs and personal goals.
