With Opening Day earlier this week and spring sports upon us, Commonwealth Orthopaedics takes a look at overuse injuries in baseball and softball...

According to the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, injuries in young athletes are on the rise, but elbow and shoulder injuries are reaching epidemic proportions. 

Thousands of children are seen each year for elbow and shoulder pain due to overuse. Overuse injuries can be prevented. To read more about prevention and treatment of these injuries, go to Commonwealth Orthopaedics blog at http://blog.c-o-r.com/2012/04/26/overuse-injuries-in-baseballsoftball/.
