We have been receiving many questions recently regarding athletes who have had Tommy John Surgery and are returning to throwing and are experiencing some pain or discomfort. The recovery process takes time and it will be uncomfortable. The most important thing is monitoring whether over time the symptoms continue to decrease or get less frequent. As long as the symptoms continue to decrease over time as you progress through your protocol you will be alright. If your symptoms ever increase or become more frequent in your tommy john recovery you may have an issue and need to see your surgeon and at minimum rest.  The most important part that often goes overlooked is adjusting the athlete’s mechanics to avoid excessive stress to the repaired tissue.
