Throwing Analysis Clinic
As pre-season baseball begins for local baseball teams, our team would like to announce a beginning of our own. This March, the UW Health Sports Rehabilitation Clinic will be starting a Throwing Analysis Clinic.
The Sports Rehabilitation Throwing Analysis Clinic offers overhead throwers a high-quality, evidence-based program for players recovering from injury as well as providing information on injury prevention and performance enhancement.
Our program includes a physical examination, therapeutic exercise, video-based biomechanical throwing analysis, correctional drills and interval throwing programs unique to age and position.
