I learned from a recent study that girls who play fast pitch softball are at a higher risk of concussion than boys who play high school baseball. That same study also showed that softball pitchers also suffer fewer shoulder and elbow injuries than baseball players. You may be as surprised as I was to learn the reasons why.
One of the most common injuries seen in my office is called impingement syndrome, otherwise known as an overuse injury to the shoulder. Today I spoke with WAKR morning show host Ray Horner about this topic.
