Should Baseball Pitchers Ice After Games?
No pain, no gain? Baseball pitching motion troubleshooter Angel Borrelli explains the difference between routine soreness and the kind of pain that requires immediate attention. Speaking of pain and injury, both Clay Buchholz and James Kaprielian have gone down with the same issue: a torn flexor tendon; Angel provides the lowdown on that injury. Also, is it "throwing across the body," or "stepping across the body"? Looking at David Price's motion as an example, Angel tells us why she prefers the latter description, and how that style could lead to elbow problems. Finally, in the "Getting It Done (with Science)" segment, a listener's question is answered regarding post-game recovery, including whether a pitcher should ice down his arm after an outing and if running is a good idea the day after.
