Pitcher’s elbow results from excessive throwing motions used in sports. It most frequently occurs in baseball but is associated with other sports that involve throwing. Pitcher’s elbow causes pain and interferes with motion. Many cases of pitcher’s elbow respond to rest and nonoperative treatment. If left untreated, pitcher’s elbow can lead to problems that require surgery.
Pitcher Elbow Symptoms
Pitcher’s elbow causes pain on the inner side of the elbow. Your elbow joint may feel like it locks or gets stuck. It may be difficult to move the elbow as you did before, and it will affect your pitching and/or throwing performance.
