Limited range of motion


#1

Hello. My son is 12 and he is not able to fully extend his pitching arm. It will not straighten. He says he has pain in elbow area sometimes not all the time. I am concerned about what I should do. He is in pt now for osgood schlatter. His pt does not seem concerned she said it’s just tight and has mentioned stretching it. I just am worried it’s more. Anyone have this problem?

I’ve heard of tightness in the shoulder being addressed (very carefully) by stretching but not in the elbow. Either way, if it were my son, I’d take him to see an orthopedist.

Thank you for your thoughts. I will probably do that.
