What can be done for elbow pain when throwing a baseball?

My son has consistent pain in his elbow?


Answer by  technogeek (6640)

He has developed some inflammation in his elbow so he would need to see an orthopedist. Also, his throwing mechanics need to be corrected so that this does not reoccur.

Prevent thrower's elbow by including warm-up exercies, flexibility exercises, and strengthening exercises. It's a soft tissue injury. At the onset of pain, use R. I. C. E. R (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation, and Referral to a physician) within 48 to 72 hours. Physiotherapy and rehabilitation will occur with the guidance of the physical therapist.

He might need to rest it. He could ice the elbow down after each game. Have the coach make sure his throwing style is correct. See a doctor.

If the elbow pain remains even after complete rest of his elbow, contact your orthopedist. Surgery is possible only if your son has crossed 14 years.
