If you or your child has suffered a softball-related injury, Island Sports Physical Therapy can also treat it. We can give you an evaluation, and determine which areas of your body need attention.

The most common softball injuries occur in the:

  • Back
  • Wrist
  • Hand
  • Shoulder
  • Knee
  • Ankle

These injuries often vary from each field position as overuse of specific joints and body regions is a common culprit. For pitchers, shoulder tendinitis is common, while catchers may develop back and knee problems. Position players can suffer from shoulder and elbow problems. No matter which of these injuries you or your child suffers from, rest and ice are beneficial for reducing pain. If pain and discomfort persist, our physical therapists on Long Island can show you what exercises are best for you, in regards to reducing the pain and increasing the range of motion.

Another common softball injury is ankle sprains. These happen often from quick stops and starts of base running, but they usually happen from sliding onto the bases. If your child suffers an ankle sprain, it is important to let the ankle rest. We at Island Sports Physical Therapy can show you the proper rehabilitation techniques for your sprained ankle.
