With a rise in youth shoulder and elbow injuries, rehabilitation of the modern throwing athlete must adapt to the physical demands required by early sport specialization. This recording will discuss strategies to integrate sport specific rehabilitation treatments with developmentally appropriate body resistance and motor skill training. By linking athletic development principles throughout the rehabilitation process, young athletes can return to sport with lower injury risk, enhanced athleticism, and improved ability to meet the physical demands of the sport.
