The 3P Peak Performance Pitching Program
Prevent Pitching Injuries with a Biomechanical Pitching Analysis
Over 90% of all pitchers have issues in their delivery that prevent them from performing as well as they could and puts them at a high risk of injury. Injuries are rampant among baseball pitchers of all ages. Unfortunately, in most cases, pitchers, parents and coaches don’t recognize the risks of injury and until it is too late.
The statistics at the amateur level are very compelling:
- 45% of pitchers under the age of 12 experience chronic elbow pain
- 60% of high school pitchers complain of chronic elbow pain
- Tommy John surgeries have increased by over 700% in the last 10 years
Through his research Dr. James Andrews and the American Sports Medicine Institute (ASMI) have concluded thatthe seeds for pitching injury are often planted during youth league play.
