Throwing and upper limb analysis

physio and anaylsis for throwing Throwing and racquet sports carry a high risk of injury to the upper limb and shoulder joints.

Screening of the upper limb movement patterns, strength and control as well as analysis of your technique will provide the therapists with insight into any areas of concern that need addressing.

Common painful complaints around the shoulder are associated with reduced muscle strength and control and poor shoulder positioning (posture). These factors are easily identifiable with screening and technical analysis of the skill (eg tennis serve or throw).

The skilled therapists at Rob Leather Physiotherapy use video analysis as well as a throwing screening adapted from professional baseball in the USA. Again this assists us to make the best decisions on how to develop your technique, treat or prevent any painful conditions that you may be susceptible to.
