Pitching Arm Injuries: Biomechanical, Physical, and Training-related Factors

It’s been a while since my last post, mainly because my last few weeks of the year at Caltech were pretty difficult and I had a lot of work to do, but thankfully the term is over now and I can get back to posting more regularly. This week, I want to make it up to you guys with a (very) long post! Linked below is a PDF file of a review paper that I just finished for my technical communication class. In the paper, I discuss how arm injuries are multi-factored and complex, and provide several variables that are related to injury risk. I do go into a bit of technical detail about certain things (elbow and shoulder biomechanics in particular), but the introduction and figures should (hopefully!) define all of the key terms you need to know. I’m not claiming to be an expert on any of this, I’m just trying to summarize a lot of the literature that’s already out there. With all of that said, here is the paper!
