Questionnaire – Pre-Surgery Throwing History & Routine

In order to truly optimize the success of your return to throwing, it is of extreme importance to go over, in great detail, your pre-surgery throwing history. Not only is it vital to know such elements as distance and volume, but how you moved innately and athletically as a by-product of your throwing routine. In addition, any other types of training modalities you used with regard to Arm Care and Arm Preparation would be essential to note as well. All of this information is extremely important for you to utilize moving forward, and naturally, share with both your Physical Therapist and Pitching Coach.
