Would like any information on some current issues. 21 yr old right handed college pitcher. Mostly pitched in relief for the past 2 seasons with no summer ball. Mild elbow discomfort while pitching and after. This summer he is pitching once a week, 80 -100 pitches a game and will have some swelling and bruising around the elbow after a game. Never have had a bruise show up after pitching and his arm really doesn't bother him the next day. Of course he ices after the game. I have searched elbow bruising and not getting any info.
Is this a symptom of a serious problem? If so, can anyone recommend a physician in the Pittsburgh, Pa area. Could wearing an elbow brace help? Chiropractic care? Biomechanics evaluation?
