One of America’s greatest sports, baseball is hard on athletes, harming pitchers, basemen, and outfielders as they forcefully throw, catch, and bat.
Each of these actions focuses on the rotator cuff, and as players age or overexert themselves, their cuff begins to fray, eventually splitting and tearing.
After the rotator cuff heals it becomes more susceptible to injury. Applying ice, and physical therapy are the best ways to get, and keep, your shoulder in shape after suffering a rotator cuff tear. Shoulder surgery may be required in more serious cases. Click Below for more information about baseball shoulder injuries and treatment.
