Non-Operative Throwing Injuries 

Treatments

Most treatment for injuries involving the throwing shoulder and elbow are nonoperative. When this fails, surgery may be indicated.

Nonoperative treatment is usually prescribed if the injury is:

  • A direct result of overuse.

  • The result of a sudden (acute) injury that does not have severe damage in the shoulder or elbow.

    In most cases, injuries to the throwing shoulder and elbow will respond to ice, rest, a program of rehabilitation exercises, splints, and pain medication.

This type of injury usually requires approximately six to twelve months to heal completely.
