Although throwing injuries in the shoulder most commonly occur in baseball pitchers, they can be seen in any athlete who participates in sports that require repetitive overhand motions, such as volleyball, tennis, and some track and field events.
Symptoms of a SLAP tear may include:
Popping, clicking, or catching in the shoulder.
Pain when you move your arm over your head or throw a ball.
A feeling of weakness or instability in the shoulder.
Aching pain. People often have a hard time describing or pointing to exactly where the pain is.
