Here you go….
I love this article by Eric Cressey. Yes it’s written for baseball players who have just been drafted,but just as easily applies to young high school athletes with big baseball dreams.
Doug Kechijian is a physical therapist and I think he does an excellent job in this article explaining that yes, manual therapy is not the end all/be all and certainly not justified in some cases. However, there are instances where it can be a very effective treatment and does have a use, especially with athletes.
Every high school/collegiate baseball player faces a decision during the summer about should they play travel ball/summer ball or just train or just hang out and do nothing etc…the answer isn’t the same for everyone.
