Shoulder pain when throwing


#1

Every time I’ve thrown for the past 2-3 weeks there has been shoulder pain for like the first 10 throws, then it goes away and my arm feels great. what could i do to prevent this?


#2

When I was pitching after college, I had very similar symptoms before being diagnosed with shoulder impingement. It would hurt like hell then suddenly “pop” and feel amazing/back to normal. Unfortunately, that pop gets harder and harder to come by. I would suggest seeing a doctor to make sure if the problem persists.

well it’s not really a “pop”. it kind of just fades away. I know it sounds like general soreness but its a sharper pain than soreness


#4

Might be as simple as needing some better stretching prior to throwing or something to get the blood flowing. What is your pre-throwing routine?


#5

run a little bit, then stretch my entire body. but i basically do that before everything


#6

After your body stretch try doing a set or two of arm circles (small to large, forward then backward) and some band work before you start throwing.


#7

yeah i’ll try anything. what are some good band exercises before throwing?


#8

Look up Jaeger J band exercises.

I wouldn’t mess with a shoulder - get it checked out.
