RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN THE MAXIMUM SHOULDER EXTERNAL ROTATION ANGLE DURING THROWING AND PHYSICAL VARIABLES
Keywords: throwing, elbow injury, shoulder
AbstractTo our knowledge, excessive shoulder external rotation may increase elbow valgus stress during throwing (2005). Inhibition of the greater shoulder external rotation angle could prevent elbow injury during throwing. Thus the purpose of this study was to determine physical factors that would increase the maximum shoulder external rotation (MER) angle.
