Girl Softball Players Suffering More Shoulder Injuries
Date:2/12/2010

Too much throwing, too little conditioning may be to blame, study says,,

FRIDAY, Feb. 12 (HealthDay News) -- While shoulder injuries among boys playing high school baseball are common among pitchers, the same injuries among girl softball players are becoming common in several positions, a new study finds.

Moreover, these injuries tended to occur among boys during games, while among the girls shoulder injuries occurred most often during practice, the researchers say.

"There should be more emphasis on training the softball players as far as physical conditioning goes," he said.

High schools should employ athletic trainers and be aware of these repetitive-motion injuries, Fogarty added.

The report was released online Feb. 8 in advance of publication in the March print issue of Pediatrics.

For the study, Fogarty's team collected data on baseball and softball injuries for the 2005-2008 academic years from about 74 U.S. high schools. These data came from the High School Reporting Information Online.

Over the study period, the researchers identified 91 shoulder injuries among baseball players and 40 among softball players. The most common injuries were strains and tears accounting for 30.8 percent of the baseball and 35 percent of the softball injuries.
