During my UCL rehab, I’ve noticed my shoulders have varying range of motion. I throw right handed.
For example: when doing the sleeper stretch, my left arm is way more flexible, I can easily touch the wrist to the ground. However in my right arm, cannot touch the ground and is about 15-20 degrees away from doing so.
Another example: When placing my left hand and elbow behind my back. I can easily touch the collar of my shirt. But when using my right hand and elbow, I’m short by about 5-6 inches.
However, when doing the reverse scarecrow (external rotation) my right arm is 30-40 degrees more flexible.
I’ve had my other baseball friends for the same stretches and they all have similar symptoms.
How common is GIRD in the shoulder? How easy/necessary is it to overcome?
