The True Science Behind Pitching

Our bodies are biomechanical machines. The muscles are the engines that control the skeleton. We created the OAI to raise the level of understanding for players and coaches, as well as instructors, with regards to the musculoskeletal and physiological principals that rule and govern the throwing motion. Understanding how the body works and how to maximize force …

Are You Throwing As Hard As You Can?

3 Things That Lead To Breakdown And Inefficiency 1. Poor Mechanics-Video Analysis can only isolate mechanical breakdowns. 2. Poor Conditioning-Our FMS/BSFMA screen will isolate any kinetic chain limitations. 3. Poor Segmental Stabilization-Eliminates any chance of creating power efficiently. Analyzing video and maximizing the opportunity an overhead thrower has to create greater velocity requires more than …

Maximize Your Kinematic Sequence And Throw Harder

There is a sequential reason why hard throwers have very similar aspects to their throwing motion. Not all throwing motions are the same, but close analysis reveals similarities within the individualized throwing motions that illuminate why hard throwers create effortless velocity. Generating speed and transferring speed throughout the body requires a perfectly timed kinematic sequence. …

CASE STUDY: Manual Therapy and Pitching Mechanics Instruction

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.
