Thrower's Performance Program

The Thrower’s Performance Program is designed for the throwing athlete at any level of competition with the goals of preventing and/or recovering from injury and achieving full performance potential. Our expert and in-depth program can detect throwing and pitching mechanics that may lead to injury while identifying factors the athlete can modify to improve velocity, control, and consistency.

Our Expert Team
Our expert team of physical therapists, certified strength and conditioning specialists, exercise physiologists, and a former professional baseball pitcher work together to provide the throwing athlete with a sport-specific musculoskeletal and performance assessment along with complex 2-D video analysis utilizing state-of-the-art Dartfish© software.

Designed for Throwers of All Ages and Abilities
The Thrower's Analysis Program is designed for throwers of all ages and abilities, including:

  • Professional baseball players 
  • Adult league players
  • High school and college level athletes
  • Youth baseball/softball and travel league players
  • Athletes that have been injured in the past or have
    experienced pain with throwing

Little League and adolescent throwers are susceptible to many of the same stresses on their arms as adult players. Often, injuries incurred at a young age may develop into more serious problems as the player matures. This program can offer players the tools they need to prevent or minimize these types of injuries.
