This video helps explain how injuries to the elbow occur and how to treat them. JOI Rehab has specific programs to help athletes who have shoulder and elbow injuries related to throwing. JOI has a Sport Center to film athletes to make sure their biomechanics or throwing motions are correct. At the Sport Center they also have throwing programs where a skilled clinician observes their mechanics throughout an entire return to sport program. The Sport Center has an outside turf area with a pitching mound and batting cage nets.
