I’ve really been working on sitting on my right leg and dropping and driving. Consequently, I pulled my quad on my plant leg and shut down for a little over a week. I just tried to throw from a mound this morning and had immediate discomfort and shut down after two pitches. Only from the mound and only when I tried my full delivery did I feel any pain. In other words, I warmed up without problems. When I first started really working on improving my lower body mechanics about three weeks ago after I realized I was lacking in this area, everything was going fine. I was improving velocity and endurance. However, I think I started to group sessions a little too close together, doing too much too soon and put too much stress on the quad.
In addition to resting it, how can I effectively rehab and get back to throwing bullpens ASAP? About how long should I shut down for? As I said, initially my work at better utilizing my lower body by sitting on my back leg more was going really well and helping multiple aspects of my delivery. Thus, I’m eager to get back to it in healthy state so I go full tilt from a mound and ultimately improve as a pitcher.
My sincere thanks to all for any ideas.
