How pitchers should train and recover to avoid injury: Patrick Pauley, Head Athletic Trainer for the Chicago Dogs Professional Baseball Team and Trainer at Athletico, discusses how overhead injuries need time to recover and analysis to be fixed. He tells Steve and Dr. Cole how session in physical therapy can help target abnormalities in throwing to prevent future injuries.
