Pediatric Shoulder and Elbow Pain…. 

Is your little athlete complaining of shoulder or elbow pain? 
Most children do not suffer from the same problems that adults do… tendonitis, etc. Their skeletons are growing and the “growth plates” that enable growth are susceptible to injury — and some of those injuries can have serious long term consequences. 

Pitch counts exist for a reason…. 

Obey those pitch counts… http://goo.gl/Ak1KE … and see your doctor if the pain persists more than a few days.
