Uh Oh

yesterday I pitched one inning, had a one-two-three, then came out for warmups and felt tightness in my throwing elbow. I was taken out of the game, then played second and my arm feels ok, but it’s still kind of stiff. I’m icing and heating it, do you think something’s really wrong? Also, when I try to fully extend my arm, I feel some tightness and can’t go all the way. I’m 13.

Given your age, quite possibly.

Have you been to a doctor?

Have you ever had any problems before?

It feels better now, on Friday. I’ve iced and heated it, and I’d say it’s at about 90 percent.

rest it for 5 days or so… don’t throw at all… not at all… not even lightly
