In July of 2015, a study was released in the American Journal of Sports Medicine that revealed that nearly 60% of Tommy John surgeries in occur in teenage males between the ages of 15 and 19. Now, four years later, have the statistics surrounding throwing injuries from youth pitchers to the Major League pitchers improved? From our statistics and observations, the answer is NO.
In this article, we provide a complete summary of all the data that was collected from over 50 professional pitchers throughout the course of the Inaugural USPBL season. Our hypothesis was that as pitchers spent more time exposed to the DVS Arm Care System, The USPBL Throwing Program, and our pitching methodology that is designed to improve a DVS Score, their Shoulder Range-of-Motion Patterns would become less injurious.
A player’s off-season presents a vital time-block in which a player is given the opportunity to restore and maximize the function of their muscular system. This article provides insight into the many ways both position players and pitchers can make the most of their off-season by utilizing The DVS Arm Care System.
This article focuses on the key relationship between a DVS Score and ROM, and further illuminate the role that mechanics have on injury and performance.
As a follow-up to Part 1 of this series, we're going to dive deeper into the truth behind the injurious range-of-motion patterns that arise in baseball players, and determine where they come from. In doing so, we'll document some compelling evidence from research, while referencing a few reputable studies that support our claims.
In this first segment of a three-part series, we will begin to outline the truth behind range-of-motion (ROM) limitations, and the injurious ROM patterns that develop within baseball players. Understand how your neuromuscular system regulates movement within the body, and what it's actually trying to do when you throw a baseball. This will provide you with a greater awareness on what's occurring on the inside, so you can apply the appropriate training solutions on the outside.
The Delivery Value System is excited to announce the release of the DVS Arm Care System! After years of study and research, we have created a process in which a thrower can perform the daily maintenance required to sustain a healthy and functional throwing arm.
Learn more about how shoulder range-of-motion patterns can give a pitcher valuable insight into injury risk. Become more familiar with what these risk factors are, and the amount of risk associated with each one so you can be better prepared.
