Little League Shoulder
If your child is suffering from little league shoulder it is essential to allow the arm and shoulder to heal. This shoulder injury requires a long period of rest, and the child may need to stop participating in throwing sports. There are a number of exercises that Silicon Valley Orthopaedics can recommend to help with healing. Dr. Nic Gay and Dr. Masi Reynolds have extensive experience in sports medicine, including the treatment of little league shoulder.
Although little league shoulder is usually caused by overuse, there may be underlying health issues that are undiagnosed. Silicon Valley Orthopaedics can provide a clinical examination of the shoulder to determine the most appropriate treatment plan.
The reality is that your child may have to sit out of sports for approximately three months while the injury heals. It is during this time that Silicon Valley Orthopaedics will provide effective treatment and ensure that a full recovery is achieved.
