BASEBALL SPECIFIC ASSESSMENTS, REHABILITATION and TRAINING
Baseball injuries are typically classified into one of two categories: acute (traumatic) or cumulative (overuse). Acute injuries are typically due to impact from being hit with a bat or a ball, or sliding into a base. Although these types of injuries can be more serious, they are less common in baseball. Cumulative or overuse injuries occur over time from repetitive stress on our body’s tissues. These could be from running, swinging, or most commonly from throwing a ball. They often start out as aches and pains, but can become debilitating if not treated early.
