inner elbow pain

by cory
(indiana)

I hurt my elbow last summer when i was pitching and i heard kind of a pop or a movement in my elbow, and got mri's on it and it said nothing was wrong, i even went and got it checked out and the doctor said that nothing was wrong.


So after awhile of not throwing about 4months i started up again and felt fine. now throwing in January i feel like i did before i hurt my arm. I pitched today and felt another movement in my elbow. I felt pain but it wasn't an excruciating feeling so i just stopped and it is not swollen or bruised or anything. I also did not feel any tingling in the tips of fingers. Any info? Maybe scar tissue from healing?

I am a high school baseball player and i play catcher and center field, and a little of third base. Ever sence i started really getting into baseball about four years ago i got verry bad pains in my throwing elbow. nothing has poped out and it onley hurts when i throw. I am a verry good baseball player and hope to continue playing but i cant with this horriable pain. I dont know what to do.

I did the same thing a little over 24 hours ago. An MRI isn't going to tell you anything. That pop you heard was your bone. It happens from improper stretching prior to throwing. Go see a chiropractor, they have the right machines to make it heal. You definitely need to get on an icing program. 20 minutes of icing, 20 minutes no ice, for about 2 hours you need to do this, every single day, for 2 weeks. No throwing either.

Inner elbow, Shoulder NEW
by: Anonymous

I have had the same thing you had as soon as I hit 58mph when I was 12' I'm now 14 and I throw 70-75mph and I still get a bad pain in my inner elbow after throwing. Also I've gotten this new pain in my shoulder and I think it's a SLAP tear but my parents don't think it's anything.
