Ultimate Performance Pitching Clinic set for May 7th

Event showcases new program at Aurora Sports Medicine Institute

 

Milwaukee — Ballplayers aged 8 and above who are seeking to improve their pitching or throwing technique are invited to the Ultimate Performance Pitching Clinic at the Aurora Sports Medicine Institute at Aurora Sinai Medical Center Saturday, May 7 from 8 to 11 a.m.

 

For $30 participants will receive 30 minutes of private consultation that includes functional movement screening, video analysis of throwing mechanics and throwing-specific drills and exercises. The clinic will utilize different parts of the Aurora Sports Medicine Institute’s new Performance Pitching and Throwing program.

 

The clinic is open to male and female players. Physical therapists and licensed athletic trainers will be available to screen athletes on strengths and weaknesses in their throwing motion, conduct a video analysis of throwing mechanics and suggest drills and exercises that will improve overall performance.

 

Those interested in attending must make an appointment; there is limited availability. For more information, call 414 219-7776.

 

A recent report by the National Athletic Trainers’ Association indicates that overuse or repetitive trauma injuries represent approximately 50 percent of all pediatric sport-related injuries, and that more than half of these injuries may be preventable with simple approaches that include identification of risk factors for injury, proper supervision and education, and training and conditioning programs.

 

The Aurora Sports Medicine Institute’s new Performance Pitching and Throwing program is designed to mitigate injury and improve performance by providing ballplayers with a comprehensive analysis of their throwing or pitching motion. The program also includes a review of individualized exercise drills, injury prevention education, physical and mental conditioning, and nutrition counseling. Additional information can be obtained by calling 414 219-7776.
