Son is a 21-year-old LHP. He's had intermittent pain in his throwing shoulder, but only when throwing the ball as hard as he can. He went to the orthopedist yesterday, and the doctor could not recreate the pain in his office. He has full range of motion, and dr. says that means it can't be the labrum. Supposed to have the MRA in the next few days, and has arranged to take a week off (last week before playoffs) in the meantime. Just wondering whether anyone else's pitcher has had the same problem? Am thinking maybe this is a sore spot waiting to tear, which is why he still has full range of motion. He also tends to have a rather high threshold for pain, which could be disguising a bigger problem. Thoughts?
A labral tear may result by the overuse and injury of biceps tendon attaches. Clicking, sharp pain and instability are the main symptoms of a labral tear. Since doctor says it can’t be labrum, don’t bother about it. Your son can try some shoulder exercises with the help of an expert physiotherapist. This may help to reduce the pain. I got relieved from my shoulder pain by the clinical conditioning exercise program and muscle retraining treatment done in Physiomed, a physiotherapy clinic in Toronto. Exercises and therapies are much better than other medications for this kind of intense pain and tear.
