9U Pitching soreness

Wednesday, June 03, 2009 by Anonymous

At the parents meeting, you had mentioned that it's not good to ice the pitcher's arm after he's done pitching. Last Saturday morning, Brandon pitched 75 pitches for his LL team, and Saturday night he said his shoulder was very sore. By Monday morning he said he felt fine. What is the best course of action to take for the 24/48 hours after he pitches if he's really sore?

Day 1 after throwing: Any exercise/activity that allows him to sweat, a jog, kick ball, soccer, backyard exercises.

Day 2: Take the time to go through the Love the Glove stretching program he does, now followed by a 10 minute light toss from no more than 60 feet away.

Slight soreness in the shoulder after throwing is normal, it should dissipate (as it did) within the next day or two.

Suggestion, let him take a jog after his pitching performance, either right after the game or when he gets home. the post-pitching run will start the cleansing process within the arm.
