Scottsdale Tommy John Surgery Prevention

Scottsdale’s Premier Tommy John Surgery Prevention Program


Sometimes surgery is necessary, but if you have a Tommy John diagnosis most often it is not!  Come see us before you go in for surgery!

What happens in Tommy Johns and many other sports injuries is that the muscles that were designed to support the shoulder and elbow fail at doing so and transfer the high velocity loads to the tendons, ligaments and skeletal system. Those structures were not designed to absorb force at such a high velocity and thus you end up with pain, discomfort and even long term damage to both the shoulder and the elbow.

Once you are in this compromised condition, traditional physical therapy, chiropractic, ice, rest, compression and elevation can do little to teach the muscles to properly absorb force.

How to Fix The Root?

Because the original problem was that the muscles were not absorbing force properly, then the treatment at its root should be to teach the biceps, triceps and surrounding muscles to properly absorb force. By reversing the root cause, we most often eliminate the need for surgery altogether.
