Chapter 06 Video 3: Shoulder and Elbow During a Serve

August 01, 2016

Contributors: Neeru Jayanthi, MD

There are risks to the shoulder and elbow during a serve. This may occur because of poor lower body and trunk force generation. In this junior player, we will see various deficits that put the shoulder and elbow at risk. These include inadequate knee bend during the preparation phase, as well as limited trunk and pelvis rotation. There is also a hyperangulation on the serve that results in excess external rotation. At the point of contact, there is poor linear motion, which results in elbow valgus. This causes the medial elbow to be at risk. All of these may be corrected by proper force generation through the lower body and trunk.
