Abstract

PURPOSE:

To use ultrasound imaging to document changes over time (i.e., preseason v postseason) in the pitching elbow of high school baseball pitchers.

CONCLUSIONS:

The stresses placed on the elbow during only one season of pitching create adaptive changes to multiple structures about theelbow including UCL heterogeneity and thickening, increased ulnohumeral joint space laxity, and enlarged ulnar nerve cross-sectional area.

LEVEL OF EVIDENCE:

Level II prospective observational study.
