Want to know what the number one factor that will lead to an injury this year? Then read on!

paper published in The Bone and Joint Journal in August 2019. In this mammoth project, researchers
scoured the records of more than 800,000 people who had a knee arthroscopy over a 15 year
period. Some of their findings are truly staggering:
Baseball, softball and cricket all have one skill in common. Throwing. Throwing places a lot of stress on the body and its’ high velocity and repetitive nature often results in injury. Our throwing expert Jess Stoll goes through the Throwers 10 program to keep you throwing strongly this season.
