Ok, you will probably remember me. I recently started having elbow troubles (about a months ago), I was pitching during a game and felt a pinch in my elbow joint and my arm went numb. Well since then I have still been pitching and playing 3-4 games every weekend. Pitching on Saturday and playing 2-3 extra Major League games on the Sunday.
I know Im being overworked and shouldn’t be playing on Sunday, but at the same time I need more experience as I’ve only been playing for 3 years.
This has also made my arm alot worse. I would just be sitting at the computer or in class and I would get a sudden sharp pain in my elbow joint for 5-10 seconds. This happens every now and then. During games when I pitch my arm also gets fatigued faster than usual and hurts more than usual.
There are only two more games left of the season, my plan is so start (pitch) those two games then rest my arm and body for 2 months. Then start work on my pitching again trying to improve velocity etc.
If anyone has any help or advice on rehabbing my arm any input is welcome. Unfortunately I didnt get any input from Mr. Ellis last time this topic was brought up so I would really appreciate some input from a professional who has perhaps been there and done that.
Also for those of you interested, I have pretty much mastered my Change-Up. But I have somehow sacrificed my curveball.
I started using my change during a game for the first time, Id never used it in a bullpen before and it was very effective. I never learnt to pitch it before because I underestimated its effectiveness and I didnt think it was worth it. But by using that in tandem with my fastball it has been very useful. But somehow I have forgotten how to throw my curveball. I used to throw it well, but since maybe 2 months ago it just got less and less effective until it reached the point where it wasnt moving at all.
If anyone has any tips on improving this please respond.
I also still throw my screwball and have finally optimised its performance and made it a very devastating pitch.
