Velocity RX

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.

Operating as usual

3 Tap Drill: Promotes loading or “staying back” and fluid extension. Look at when his arm actually accelerates. It is “downhill” in a gravity assisted position. Notice when the ball would leave his hand. He gains at least 6 feet towards homeplate.

Dr. Kevin J McGovern on Twitter “@BGlobeSports Good article but missing the main issue. The mechanics. They way that pitching has been taught for years violates the normal neurological sequence of the body’s movements. This is the main reason there are so many elbow injuries.”

Velocity drops in Spring Training can be red flags.

Maybe, just maybe its time to take a closer look at mechanics and training.....maybe.... 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.

[06/04/14]   Congratulation goes out to VELOCITY Rx athlete Paul Campbell (Malden Catholic '13, Salisbury '14) for being awarded a baseball scholarship to Clemson University!

[03/05/14]   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!

Jeff Allison keeps passion to play 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...

[06/29/12]   Game 7, Velocity Rx, and McGovern PT client Kenny Luongo, two years removed from Tommy John Surgery and one year removed from foot surgery, came within one strike of the greatest feat in sports: the Perfect Game. Kenny allowed 1 hit and struck out 7 in Yawkey League play. He raised his record to 4-0 along with a 0.286 ERA! Congrats Kenny! You worked very hard to be healthy!
