Doctor's Lounge—July 26, 2017

Doctor’s Lounge featured HSS clinical fellow Christopher Camp, MD in an article about his team’s study presented at the annual meeting of the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine. The study linked baseball pitchers with deficits in shoulder external rotation and forward flexion during pre-season physicals to an increased risk for elbow injury during the following season.

Dr. Camp spoke on the results of the study and said "Both external rotation and forward flexion are critical measures…This work really supports the concept of the 'kinetic chain,' which describes the process of energy transfer from the feet, through the hips and trunk, to the shoulder, elbow, and eventually the ball. When there are errors or aberrant motion at one link in the chain (i.e., the shoulder), this has an adverse effect on the subsequent segments (i.e., the elbow)."
