The incidence of Tommy John surgery in baseball players continues to be on the rise throughout amateur and professional baseball. At this point it’s unfortunate that many feel it is just “part of the game.”
There are many myths about Tommy John surgery and the procedure is even thought to have guaranteed success. Some even believe that Tommy John surgery will enhance their performance and increase their velocity.
The mainstream media tends to focus on the success stories, however, it’s a long process of surgery and rehabilitation.
I recently sat down with 3 professional baseball pitchers on an episode of the Ask Mike Reinold Podcast to hear their stories about their elbow injury, surgery, and rehabilitation follow Tommy John. Tim Collins, Dennis Torres, and Jamill Moquette do an amazing job sharing their experiences. This is great insight to learn straight from the pros and a must watch for every baseball player, parent, and coach.
