Portsmouth, NH – Baseball and softball season is right around the corner and Access Sports Medicine & Orthopaedics would like to help Seacoast area athletes make it through the upcoming season injury free.  Join us on Tuesday, March 13th at 5:30-6:30pm at 155 Borthwick Ave in Portsmouth for a brief session on “A Preseason Guide to Injury Prevention in the Young Throwing Athlete.”  Dr. Kevin Heaton will break down the mechanics of throwing and why overuse injuries of the shoulder and elbow are so common.  He will explain the use of pitch counts and how other conservative measures are often used to limit throwing injuries. Trainers will demonstrate exercises and stretching techniques that can prepare the upper body for baseball and softball season and Dr. David Davis will discuss common signs and symptoms of an overuse injury and what treatment options are available.

An assortment of food and beverages will be available and one lucky attendee will leave with a pair of tickets to an upcoming Red Sox game at Fenway Park!  Please RSVP for this event as space is limited by calling (603)431-3575 or email  Parents, coaches and athletes are all encouraged to attend.
