Shoulder and elbow injuries (such as rotator cuff strain, labrum tear, or ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) sprain or tear) are very common in both baseball and softball. These are often related to overuse due to the repetitive nature of throwing at games and practices for months throughout the year and the force this act requires. Because throwing and hitting are full body motions and contact with the ground or another player can occur, it is not unusual to also have injuries in the muscles, ligaments or tendons of the lower body or spine as well.
