Here we show manual therapy and biomechanics instruction with an athlete we are working with in the clinic. This individual came to us with an interesting presentation in his throwing mechanics and medial elbow pain. In this video we show some of our interventions with this particular athlete.

I have been getting a lot of questions regarding how I lost my leg or what happened to me, which is often very difficult to talk about, but I decided to make a video to explain what happened and how that has led me to where I am today. These experiences drove me to make […]

WATCH: Here we show some of the active release and trigger point work we utilize at the OAI. We often use these techniques in combination with active internal rotation end range training and glenohumeral mobilizations. The goal is to restore full pain free range of motion and improve how the shoulder articulates in the socket. […]

Pronation timed appropriately is extremely important especially for someone who has undergone a reconstruction. Our bodies are hardwired to move certain ways based on physiology, joint orientation, posture, neuromuscular tone, genetics, hyper or hypomobility, etc. etc.  Over supination or supination maintained too late in the throwing motion is often catastrophic for throwing athletes. The only […]

The Rotator Cuff’s role in the throwing motion is to center the humeral head of the shoulder in the socket of the scapula. The muscles of the Rotator Cuff (RTC) and the muscles that attach the shoulder blade (scapula) to the rib cage control the position that the shoulder stays in during every phases of the throwing […]

Today’s athletes are expected to be more specialized at a much earlier age. This is both good and bad. From the perspective of skill acquisition and the timing and repetition required to become or approach elite status, specialization may have a benefit. From the perspective of over-training and diversification of activity, early specialization may negatively […]

Long Toss has been used by many coaches and teams as a means to increase arm strength and endurance. There has never been any statistical justification or evidence based research study to support this anecdotal method of training. Long toss does more damage than good. Changing the angle of release for an overhead thrower alters […]
