The Throwing Analysis

JOI Rehab has a throwing program which utilizes the Dartfish Program.  This program allows us to video the mechanics of throwing.  Through this program we are able to better educate athletes, parents and coaches about the proper throwing mechanics.  There is no need to wait if you have pain from throwing!

How to Help Your Child Become a Better Throwing Athlete

Florida’s climate allows the games of baseball and softball to be played all year long. Many boys and girls will decide to try their skills at the pitching position. Most youngsters in league level play start pitching at the age of nine or ten. It is extremely important that the young developing pitcher not only learn the correct mechanics, but have the strength and flexibility to be able to demonstrate the proper technique.

JOI Rehabilitation sees a great deal of throwing athletes in the clinic who participate at the middle school and high school level with
injuries and subsequent surgeries as a direct result of incorrect mechanics.

What Can Be Done?

Coaches do an incredible job of teaching your child the art of throwing a baseball or softball. However, our staff at JOI Rehab can help with  additional resources to address proper mechanics. JOI Rehab possesses state-of-the-art equipment to perform a comprehensive video analysis of your child performing the sequences of throwing. This biomechanical assessment breaks down the complete motion of throwing into stages.

This process is then reviewed by one of our experienced staff who specifically work with throwing athletes. From this data, clinicians work with your child on correcting any issues.  Also, we will gladly work with your child’s coach to assist with the complete circle of care.

Flexibility

The other part of this equation is the focus on the correct strength and flexibility in order for an athlete to be able to achieve the proper form of throwing. Again, JOI Rehabilitation clinicians have the expertise to develop specific programs for the individual needs of your child. The importance of this type of early intervention is so important.  Just like any sport, throwing a baseball/softball is a learned activity, and it is of vital importance to have correct mechanics from the start. Investing in this process not will not only help your child reach his/her maximum potential with his/her sport.  Therefore, it will also help them from having shoulder or elbow problems down the road.
