Does Tommy John surgery change a pitcher’s spin rate, velocity, or whiff ratio? Turns out, according to a new study, Major League Baseball pitchers who undergo ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction (UCLR) do not experience any significant decreases in the spin rate, velocity, whiff rate, or hard-hit rate of 4-seam fastball, 2-seam fastball, or slider at 2 years after ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction—aka: Tommy John Surgery.
Shoulder surgery can potentially restore pain-free range of motion and full function to a damaged shoulder joint. Surgery is a treatment for a variety of conditions in your shoulder joint. These include rotator cuff tears, shoulder dislocations, and shoulder separations.
Recent findings suggest that the effectiveness of exercise depends on the time of day (Exercise Time Of Day, ETOD). Now, a randomized controlled trial not only confirms convincingly that ETOD affects the effectiveness of exercise, but also shows that these effects differ between types of exercise, and between women and men.
Results of Arthroscopic Revision Rotator Cuff Repair for Failed Open or Arthroscopic Repair: A Prospective Multicenter Study on 100 Cases
To investigate results after arthroscopic revision RCR. We hypothesized that (1) arthroscopic revision RCR would lead to improved outcomes, (2) the clinical results would be dependent on tendon integrity and (3) tear pattern, tendon involvement, and repair technique would influence clinical and structural results.
