Building Shoulder DURABILITY

One of the simplest ways to help your durability as a baseball player is to regularly have your shoulder measured

Measuring total range of motion of the shoulder, both external rotation and internal rotation, can help to inform not just an athletes training, but their throwing program

For example, we know from the data that the ideal difference in a baseball players internal rotation of their throwing shoulder, versus the non throwing shoulder, is 12-17 degrees

Players that maintained a 12-17 degree gap, stayed healthy

Conversely, those who exceeded 19.7 degrees (every degree matters!), had a much higher incidence of arm injury

Baseball injury rates have continued to skyrocket

But with the injury rate increasing has also come better knowledge and data about what steps can be taken to keep a healthy arm

Getting regular measurements, and making the according adjustments, is a must
