The Biomechanics of Throwing

Podcast discussing the technology for bio-mechanics assessment of the shoulder and elbow and how this technology can improve throwing skills and help prevent future injury through specialized return to play throwing programs. With Brittany Dowling, Director of Biomechanics from Midwest Orthopedics at Rush joining co-hosts Dr. Brian Cole and Steve Kashul.

Brittany Dowling received her masters in Biomechanics at Texas Tech and previously worked as director of Research for Motus Global, sports technology firm developing wearable sensors and workload monitoring for athletes.  At Rush, Brittany is leading the team to develop and implement throwing and landing assessments to help clinicians and coaches get a comprehensive understanding of an athletes’ movement. She has worked with athletes from youth to professional for the last 10 years and has collaborated with top research programs in efforts to bridge the gap between the laboratory and the field.

At Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush (MOR) Sports Performance Center, our goal is to bridge the gap between sports medicine and sports performance. Using evidence-based methods and the world’s best equipment at our state-of-the-art facility, we are helping athletes of all levels transition from injury to a confident return to their sport.
