  Throwing Evaluations   

The overhead throwing athlete is an extremely challenging patient in sports medicine. The repetitive micro traumatic stresses imposed on the athlete’s shoulder joint complex during the throwing motion place the athlete at high risk for injury. Treatment of the overhead athlete requires the understanding of the unique physical characteristics of the athlete and the demands endured during throwing. A comprehensive program designed for the overhead athlete is necessary to avoid injury and maximize performance. Our therapists are skilled in providing a multiphase progressive rehabilitation program designed to prevent injuries and/or rehabilitate athletes, both non-operatively and postoperatively.  Carlyle Schomberg, PT, performs most of throwing evaluations and is located in the Sylva clinic.
