My son was pitching in July after his Freshman yr in high school. During the first inning he threw a pitch and gasped in pain. Didnt return to mound and we immediatky went to doctor. He diagnosed it as a ucl sprain amd to take a month off. He took month off and tried throwing and he said he felt pain again. In sequence we took august through december off and he jst worked out and worked on hitting. We went to arosti guy in begining of December and gave us some rotater cuff building excersises as well as forearm n elbow stuff. My son has returned to throwing and says there is nonpain at all until he drops elbow lower than shoulder and then there is a sligt little pinch inelbow area. When he goes back to correct form says it feels fine. My question is should we ne worried and is it to early to be throwing? Any suggestions and or insight would be great. He has been put on jvb team and is very disapointed but coach told it that is was due to this issue. Thank you in advance.

It is hard to understand and answer your question due to the multiple misspellings from your cell phone entry. What is "arosti guy"?
Also, what doctor did you see? Post the doctor's name and location here, or click on my name and send a private message.
Finally, please give me a feel for where your son is on his annual calendar. How much did he pitch in spring, summer, and fall 2016? What time period did he take off after the UCL sprain diagnosis, and was there any other time off before or after that I should know about? What is his JV team's schedule now (pre-season, etc.)?
