An innovative & scientific method of improving pitching mechanics to improve velocity, control, and eliminate injury. Velocity Rx is an instructional program for pitchers and catchers.
Velocity RX's teaching philosophy and methods are based on the application of anatomy, kinesiology, and movement science in order to produce the greatest amount of velocity and accuracy through the baseball while limiting the chance of injury. Velocity RX was created by Dr. Kevin J. McGovern, PT, CSCS. Dr. McGovern has been involved in the rehabilitation of 100's of pitchers and catchers from Little League to the Pro's. Dr. McGovern deleivered huge results re-training injured pitchers and catchers to throw again after having major surgery AND saving many athletes from surgery with mechanical changes and corrective exercise. The purpose for the creation of Velocity RX was to stop injuries from ever occuring, to teach mechanics which limits the stress on the arm, and most importantly, to educate the baseball public on the importance of looking at pitching from a medical perspective. Velocity RX simply works. It works because the entire body is evaluated even before one pitch is thrown to look for any and all body movements that may cause potential injury. The instruction and corrective exercise will give the body the coordinated tools to throw harder and more accurate with less shoulder and elbow stress. Students will increase their velocity at least 3-5 MPH but more importantly, will be able to throw multiple strike from 30 feet....BLINDFOLDED! At the end of the day, if you can throw 3 pitches for strikes to all 4 quadrants of the plate, you will be highly successful at any level.

sportsonearth.com Fretting about a pitcher's velocity has become an annual ritual in the era of PITCHf/x and Statcast. I typically preach calm and reason rather than alarm -- but that doesn't mean a drop in velocity isn't a red flag. Just look at the past five seasons.

Does your arm or elbow hurt after throwing? If it does you have bad mechanics. No other reason. Please see got a professional with a kinesiology and or science background that can help you. Your current, past, and or future coach cannot help you unless they're trained in kinesiology. Having played baseball at a professional level does not in any way to make anyone an authority on pitching. There are way too many arm injuries to continue to increase each and every year because people are going to coaches who have no idea what they're teaching or why they're teaching it.
If you're pitching exercise routine consist a resistive elastic bands to strengthen rotator cuff you may want to stop. Why? Because the rotator cuff is only designed to slow the arm down during throwing. So by strengthening it in conventional ways we've done for years really is decreasing your velocity. If the coach you're going to tonight cannot explain that go somewhere else!
bostonherald.com MALDEN — Thursday night Jeff Allison was standing in the spot he loves best in the world, happy just to be there. It wasn’t Paris in April. It wasn’t San Francisco on a foggy night. It was just a baseball diamond, the place where he first learned about love. Not the kind of love...
