Abstract

Shoulder injuries are common in young throwing athletes. Most injuries are overuse types related to excessive pitch counts, premature use of breaking pitches, and improper pitching mechanics. These etiologic factors should be recognized early and treated. Prevention of injuries should play a major role in decreasing shoulder injury.
