Baseball Recovery & Injury Prevention
Baseball pitchers’ arms undergo a lot of stress throughout the season. The constant repetitive motion commonly leads to players overusing their arms and ultimately causes overuse injuries when their arms are not adequately recovered. When the body isn’t able to fully recover in between games or training sessions, it continues to break down. Not only are bio-mechanics and performance affected, the body is also susceptible to more injuries. To prevent injuries and perform at their best, baseball pitchers should focus on taking care of their arm, which means having the proper recovery tools/techniques in place.
Active Recovery Techniques
The most effective form of baseball recovery, or muscle recovery in general, is active recovery. Active recovery refers to low-intensity muscle activation, which is the key facilitator for all stages of the recovery process. To achieve the best recovery possible, try adding some active recovery techniques into your baseball recovery routine, just be sure not to put too much stress on the muscles as this can reverse recovery benefits.
