Collinsville Pitching Lessons | Assessment to Corrective

During the evaluation for the Athletic Mission Baseball Academy Collinsville Pitching Lessons, there are in depth conversation in getting to understand what each pitcher think, observes, and think about their ability to pitch and get the job done. Our players are constantly being put through an assessments with prescribe corrective exercises that will allows us to help a kids get better as well as reduces the liability of potentially of getting hurt. We do this through a formal assessment. This assessment is taken into consideration of the the following things, the ankles, the hip, the t-spine, the shoulders, the elbow, the wrist. All of these things have to work together fluently to get the most out of your body to successfully deliver the baseball into the zone. There are 14 different exercise that all help with everything that we do. these exercise are in the post evaluation phase of the program and re-evaluate again every 6-7 week during our testing week of the program.

We are a player development facility and we utilize information to help each guy get better. One of the most important area for one to get better at is in how they move and the assessment will help us understand each of these areas. We are the best and the only one when it come to Collinsville Pitching Lessons that invest the extra time to ensure a guy is moving properly. Once this has been assess then each guy gets placed on to their very own corrective exercise plan. This is designed to improve anything that the assessment found which will potential hurt a kids ability to develop as a pitcher and develop a healthy pitching routine. We utilize the three dimensional motion capture analysis to assist us with this process as well. Some of the exercise include the following:

  •  Neck side bend test which is designed to see whether you have adequate range of motion when you side bend your neck. The corrective exercise for this is the neck side flexion stretch.
  • Neck rotation test which is designed to see if we can at least rotate our neck about 70-90 degrees in both direction and we are unable to the corrective exercise is the neck rotator stretch.
  • Shoulder abduction neck rotation test is to determine if the levator scapulae muscles that are used the lift the shoulder into a shrug are short. The corrective exercise for this is the Levator scapulae stretch.
  • Shoulder external rotation test is designed to see if we have good ange of motion in the external part of our shoulder. If we do not the corrective exercise for such is the medial shoulder rotators stretch and the lateral shoulder rotatos.
  • Shoulder internal rotation test is designed to assess the internal rotation of the shoulder. If you are tight or short then you need to do the medial shoulder rotator stretch and the lateral shoulder rotators stretch as corrective exercises.

This test is in depth and far more than you will get out of any other facility that gives Collinsville Pitching Lessons. If you are not assess prior to your training session then you are risking the chance of getting hurt, and if an instructors is willing to take that liability then I would likely reconsider my options. This assessment id performed every seven week and on that seventh week we will re test is and go on another program designed to fix whatever issues come up at that time. This is a never ending process, your body will always be adjusting and need adjusting, if you stay on top of it, you start to limit the potential of injuries. When you limit the potential of injuries you stay on the field longer and you are able to help your team win games. At the end of the day we all play to win games. But we have to be healthy and that is why Athletic Mission has been the go to lately for Collinsville Pitching Lessons, over competitors.
