What is Little League Elbow Syndrome?

Little League Elbow Syndrome is most commonly seen in young children who are heavily involved in baseball. The repetitive microtrauma of pitching results in the medial (inside) structures of the elbow such as the medial epicondyle and medial collateral ligament to become subjected to a greater than normal tension stress . This same action results in the lateral (outside) structures of the elbow such as the radial head to become compressed during the action of pitching. Suffers of Little League Elbow Syndrome will present with pain, popping and clicking and well as elbow locking. They may also suffer from avulsion fractures of the medial collateral ligament or a tear of the same ligament.
