  • When Can I Return to Play After an Orthopedic Sports Injury

    As an orthopedic surgeon specializing in sports medicine, the timing of when a player can "return to sport" is one of the most frequently asked questions of me – from the patients themselves, their parents (if they're minors) and from the media, especially if I'm being interviewed about a professional athlete.

However, for many common orthopedic injuries, there's usually a fairly consistent timeline for return to sport or active living. In the interest of providing at least some answer to this frequently asked question, we'll dive into it here.

    Youth baseball leagues often have fairly strict limits on how many innings pitchers can pitch, or how many pitches a player can throw. But for girls playing fast-pitch softball, such guidelines are rare. One reason is that softball pitchers throw underhand, a motion thought to stress the arm less than the overhand throws seen in baseball.
