What is little league elbow and how do you treat it?

My son's coach thinks he may have little league elbow.

Little league elbow is when the elbow is over used and stressed from throwing motions. The most common treatment would be physical therapy to improve range of motion.

Little league elbow is overload to the elbow from repetitive throwing. Physical therapy would help also resting and icing. Don't rush back to play you can make it worse.

It is also called tennis elbow among other things. All it is, is the tendons are acting like the squeaking hinge on a door that doesn't want to open properly the proper treatment is to take them to the doctor and let them treat it they are much better at it then an over the counter treatment.

My son had the same thing and had to go to 8 sessions of physical therapy. It really helped strengthen his arm and he's back to pitching with no problems.
