elbow pain

my elbow only hurts when i lock my elbow/arm up, any help?

What do you mean by “… lock my elbow/arm up…”

[quote=“dm59”]What do you mean by “… lock my elbow/arm up…”[/quote]like when i straighten my arm out, like when your doing a bench press, when your get to the top, and lock your elbows…

Where in your elbow is the pain?

[quote=“Roger”]Where in your elbow is the pain?[/quote]inside part of the elbow, theres a little gap in between two bones, there…

And you’ve not seen a doctor?
You know better. What would YOU tell a poster?
Have courage, you are young and strong, if it’s nothing, no big deal, if it’s something…Better to get it looked at and better than to let it linger and be a problem for a long time. Get it checked…by someone who knows…If that means getting referred to a specialist then do it.

You need to work on pronating all of your pitches.

It could also be due to throwing too many sliders.

So Chris…you’ve seen the x-ray and mri and have diagnosed Mr Lorenz as having a definate injury caused by A) Lack of pronation and B) Too many sliders.
Man are you good…saw all that all the way from St. Louie…no doubt while impressing mlb scouts. It gets hard to be friendly when you are endevoring to be so irresponsible.
Tanner, it looks like Dr. O’Leary has made any trip to the doctor unnecessary so don’t worry about any potential lingering pain or how it may effect your FUTURE here, just stop throwing sliders and pronate.
Funny I’ve never even heard you comment that the slider was part of your pitch repetory…no matter…stop it.
Good Luck :shock:

He SHOULD go see a doctor.

However, he also needs to address the root cause of the problem, which may be related to throwing a slider (deliberately or not).

tanner i had the same pain in between my elbow and one day i through a fastball and i just felt my arm crack almost like i over extended it or something but newayz…i couldnt throw for like 3 months, im fine now however the docters diagnoses and i got a few of them was that the nerve in between those two bones was swollen probably from overuse or something but what do doctors really kno about baseball. Newayz I do know that college pitchers throw a hell of alot and u might want to c a doctor, hell prob. suscribe you with some anti inflamatories or something but as far as if your doing nething thats causing this, if this is the first time, its prolly cuz your throwing more then your used to and ur arms starting to get weary. I could b wrong but if its never happened b4 i doubt its something with what your throwing or what your doing mechanics wise.

Ok, I’m trying to find a doctor in nd for baseball injuries, so far ive taken some steps to try figure out whats the matter, the pain has gone away fora while now and has felt good, but i feel its still there, i am taking muscle stain, tendonitis pills and putting muscle cream on my elbow every day, running, icing it daily, and after not throwing for 3 days, i noticed a way better feeling, i went down to iowa this last weekend and found out that it isint tommy john or anything serious, i dont throw a slider and havent thrown a curve this offseason, i can tell u when i began to feel it, i was throwing and it started to feel like i was locking my elbow when i throw, weird huh, and then it has hurt since then…i wont pitch and will continue to stretch it good and let u all know how its going soon here, i believe rest may be the best thing now…

By “locking” do you mean simply extending it as far as it goes? Or does it feel like it locks in place and won’t move?

that sounds exactly like wut wuz happening to me, im glad ur doing all of those to help urself, but with locking the arm i felt like i was doing that to like on some pitches but not all and then this one pitch i threw a fastball and my elbow liked like ur describing it and it hurt so bad my arm felt like jello but sounds like ur taking the appropriate actions.

today i started the jobes, core, and tube exercises posted by steve on his articles…arm feels good, im still not going to throw until thursday, threw lefty today haha

Has any pitcher here NEVER had elbow pain before? I would like to know if anyone has.

i noticed one thing, on your pitching video you throw off something that can be used as a mound. are you throwing a lot from mounds and angled stuffs? because i know doing it too much might tear up the elbow because of the over momentum you get. mounds should be primarly for warm ups before games and games
