#4: Schedule a Shoulder Examination with Dr. Arnold

The shoulder goes through changes during a baseball season to the point which may increase injury risk even if no pain is present:

So make an appointment with Dr. Arnold for a shoulder exam to restore your shoulder to its' proper position




#3: Get Stronger with a Proper Offseason Arm Program

I have put together a 12-week shoulder conditioning program with a specific emphasis on deceleration shoulder training.

#2: Start throwing 1 month before team practices begin

Timing is everything, especially when it comes to throwing. If you cannot perfect your timing, your throwing will suffer and your risk of injury will increase.




#1: Have a Throwing Video Analysis Done

65% of people are visual learners. Having a throwing video analysis done with Dr. Arnold can be an invaluable learning tool for every ballplayer, not just pitchers.
