Joint Injuries in Baseball

Dr. Derek Papp, Sports Medicine Physician at Miami Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute, says baseball is very different about injuries when compared to other sports, because it is a lot of overuse injuries, a lot of throwing too much or running.

The types of most affected joints in baseball are ball-and-socket, hinge, pivot and ellipsoidal. "The speech that I give all of my patients is the shoulder is a golf ball that sits on a tee and it's all the little muscles that help it move around and that give it the freedom that allows us to raise our arm above our head and throw a ball," he explains.
