DD has had her share of injuries over the years. Some softball related, some not. I will just highlight a few...
*Broken bone in her foot that occurred playing basketball.
*Green stick fracture of her left collar bone that occurred ice skating.
*Broken left pinky finger that occurred playing softball. She was a 13 year old playing 16u fall ball. The pitcher let one get away from her that looked like it was going to drill DD in the ribs. She took her left hand off the bat handle in an attempt to catch the ball (seriously...). Ended up with a broken finger...
*Golfer's elbow. This prevented her from pitching for approximately 2 months. She then moved on to wearing a support band. She wore that for approximately 18 months. Has been fine now for 2 years.
*Shoulder issues. She has several... After an MRI, a doctor informed her that she may have a labral tear in her throwing shoulder, but the MRI was inconclusive. The only way to know for sure was to operate. She visited a surgeon who agreed with the initial doctor, but isn't convinced there is a tear. She was scheduled for PT and ultimately a cortisone shot. She feels much better now, but realizes she will probably need surgery at some point in the future.
She has been active in sports since she was 5, and has had her share of office visits. She has had several great experiences with PT professionals and has decided to choose that as her future career. She is currently playing college ball and studying to become a Physical Therapist. So far she really enjoys it.
