Now that the weather is staying in our favor here in the St. Louis area, many of you may be hitting the golf course and/or starting your softball leagues. To prevent any shoulder injuries during your game please look at some of these tips and VIDEOS from STARK (the ultimate pitcher website) and the Hospital of Special Surgery to help you warm up your shoulder before any major activity. Look out this summer so you can enjoy the weather and your sport.
- Try to not carry your golf bag as much with a painful ache in shoulder
- Movement of shoulder should be timed after the hip and trunk motion in swing.
- With a shoulder injury try putting a towel under the injured arm pit during practice swings. The reason behind this is the elbow can be close to the elbow to decrease straining the shoulder.
- To see how to use a stretch band to warm up your shoulder before a work out of sport, please watch these Videos.
