Throwing Injuries of the Elbow
Repetitive throwing places severe stress on the elbow joint. The throwing motion stretches the tendons and ligaments on the inside of the elbow and compresses the structures on the outside. These forces can damage tissue and bone, especially in young athletes whose bones have not fully matured.
