What Causes Little League Elbow?
Little League Elbow is a common overuse injury that will become more common as more youths participate in baseball programs and sports that involve overhead arm movements. It is highly treatable if detected early on.
It occurs when the tendons that attach to the bony bump and the growth plate on the inside of your elbow become inflamed and irritated. The pain can be felt at rest or during activity, but it’s usually worse with certain movements such as gripping objects or turning doorknobs.
The symptoms of overuse, such as pain, swelling, redness, and limited range of motion, indicate an advanced overuse condition.
Prevention and treatment should emphasise educating athletes, parents, and coaches about the condition’s etiology.
There are many factors involved in the treatment, management and prevention of little league elbow, including proper pitching mechanics, stretching and strengthening programs, improving early recognition, and, most importantly, limiting the number of pitches thrown daily.

Physical Therapy For Little League Elbow
Our physical therapists are highly experienced in the treatment of little league elbow and will design an individual treatment program tailored to your specific needs. They use a combination of therapies: exercise therapy, intrinsic core strengthening, laser therapy or shockwave therapy, to reduce pain and discomfort, activate the deep core muscles, strengthen the muscles of the wrist, forearm, and shoulder, and improve function.
At Dublin Physical & Chiropractic, we use the most advanced and innovative shockwave therapy technology available today to treat little league elbow pain. Shockwave therapy is a non-invasive treatment that can help speed up recovery time for little league elbow by improving blood flow and reducing inflammation.
Laser therapy is a non-invasive, painless treatment that uses light energy to help reduce inflammation and speed up the healing process. It is an excellent option for those who are unable to tolerate other treatments such as surgery or injections.
The spine is made up of two parts: the vertebrae (bones) and inter-vertebral discs (cartilage). The little league elbow pain may be caused by an imbalance between these two structures, causing compression to occur in one area while another area becomes overstretched.
Our chiropractors are highly skilled in the use of spinal decompression, a treatment that uses gentle force to separate the vertebrae and relieve compression on the discs. This can help reduce pain and improve function in little league elbow patients.
Intrinsic Core Strengthening
At Dublin Physical & Chiropractic it is fundamental to have a balanced, stable, active and strong core, because that is where all movement work from, it is the foundation. Our physical therapists will prescribe an intrinsic core strengthening program to help you regain strength and stability in the muscles of your trunk and pelvis. This will help reduce pain and improve function in little league elbow patients.
At Dublin Physical & Chiropractic we believe that exercise is one of the best treatments for little league elbow. Our physical therapists will prescribe a rehabilitation program to help you regain strength in little league elbow patients and improve your overall health and well-being.
