THE FIX EPISODE #5
Education, Solutions and Troubleshooting for the baseball pitcher featuring sport kinesiologist Angel Borrelli and baseball blogger Joe Janish.
What is “platelet-rich plasma injection” and what does it have to do with baseball pitchers who have suffered a torn ulnar collateral ligament? What is an “ulnar nerve irritation” and how does that injury occur to a baseball pitcher’s elbow? What can a pitcher do to treat it, and prevent it?
In this episode, Angel and Joe discuss New York Mets pitcher Bobby Parnell’s partially torn UCL, the definitions of “ulnar nerve irritation” and “platelet-rich plasma injection,” as well as a new paradigm for keeping MLB pitchers healthy.
