Chiropractor Lebanon Tennessee
Baseball and Overhead Athletes -
Your Injuries Are Our Specialty!
Baseball Injury Specialist in Lebanon, TN
Dr. Tanner Mazour with Cumberland Chiropractic and Sports Medicine in Lebanon TN specializes in treating shoulder pain and elbow pain in baseball players and the overhead athlete in general. Elbow pain and then Tommy John Surgery (Ulnar Collateral Ligament or UCL Reconstruction) has become unbelievably prevalent in the past 15 years, even among little league players. Labrum tears and rotator cuff injuries follow closely behind, and it's Dr. Mazour's passion to help these athletes recover from shoulder pain or elbow pain and prevent shoulder or elbow surgery.
Dr. Mazour became interested in treating baseball players after suffering many injuries over the course of his baseball career. After pitching 3 games in 1 week during his sophomore year of
high school, he had some very significant pain in his throwing shoulder. He was treated by chiropractors in his hometown with great success, which ignited his passion and pursuit. Dr. Mazour then quickly became fascinated in how the lower extremity, spine, and upper extremity work together to achieve the same goal. Dr. Mazour has learned from the best Sports Medicine Physicians in the world by taking seminars with Greg Rose at OnBaseU, Pavel Kolar and Brett Winchester through Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization, and Gray Cook with the Selective Functional Movement Assessment. He specializes in spine and extremity adjusting, taping, functional rehab, and soft tissue techniques. He has a passion to solve the puzzle of injuries in athletes and help them get back to their sport performing better and pain free.

What Causes Most Baseball Injuries?
Baseball requires players to have coordinated effort and control from the ground up. There are
a variety of factors that play into the technique of your batting and pitching. If a player has physical limitations, the technique will only get you so far in your performance. Here are some common causes of baseball injuries that we can help restore:
- Lack of thoracic extension/rotation
- Lack of motor control of the core
- Instability of the shoulder complex
- Limited range of motion in the shoulder complex
- Limited mobility and motor control of the hips

How Do You Help Baseball Injuries?!?!
Each injury is different, so here at Cumberland Chiropractic and Sports Medicine, we like to take
a comprehensive approach by doing a thorough examination, including neurological, muscular, and skeletal exam, on each patient. We will perform a functional examination to see if their complaint could be stemming from a lack of motor control or a mobility problem in the body. For example, a pitcher with elbow inflammation could suffer from a lack of mobility in the shoulder joint that requires the elbow to do “extra work” to complete the throw, thus causing pain. We will help correct mobility limitations, improve your strength and power, and develop coordination to get you to the top of your game. It is our goal to get you Better, Faster so you can achieve your goals, whether it is being able to throw the ball with your child in the yard or enhancing your game on the field.
