Abstract

Date Presented 3/31/2017

Fast-pitch softball pitchers are at increased risk for overuse injuries, possibly due to fatigue. This study measured kinematics, strength, fatigue, and pain over the course of a simulated game. Pitchers lost strength and reported fatigue, but they maintained pitch speed while altering their kinematics.
