Nic has continued to work hard with the coach and in the gym. His arms are stronger than they have ever been and his mechanics are sound. He is throwing essentially pain free this season and returned to the mound for the first time in over a year on Sunday.

The Main Point
Don't let arm injuries derail your son or daughter's career. Be smart. When pain persists get a doctors opinion. If the doctor recommends rest and / or therapy, follow the advice. After the doctor supervised therapy, continue strengthening the arm on your own. And don't forget the most important avoiding injury by using the proper mechanics. Get a coach to evaluate your son / daughter's throwing motion. and have them correct any mechanical issues that may be putting the young arm at risk.
