Manual Arm Care
It is very important that you maintain your strength with your routine arm care program but the reduction in mobility may benefit quickly and significantly from manual arm care. Repetitive throwing results in posterior cuff tightness which can immediately result in a 10-degree reduction of internal rotation. Cumulatively not addressing this can not only affect performance but can result in injury. Manual treatment would be beneficial to target the pec minor, teres major and subscapularis as these are all muscles that internally rotate the shoulder while throwing and may require stretching or soft tissue release. Again, adding this to your routine could be game changing for performance and injury prevention.
