Mt. Sterling, Ky. (May 2, 2018) – Baseball season is in full swing, and KentuckyOne Health is helping athletes and community members avoid injuries and improve their baseball game, with a free throwing clinic on Saturday, May 12. The clinic will take place from 10 a.m.-noon at Frazier Rehab Institute, located at 624 N. Maysville Road. Frazier Rehab Institute is a service of Saint Joseph Mount Sterling.

During the free clinic, community members can learn about proper throwing techniques, and how to avoid injuries while improving their game. James Rollins, MD, KentuckyOne Health Orthopedic Associates and Graham Gandee, physical therapist, Frazier Rehab Institute, will both be on-site to discuss various topics, including proper throwing mechanics, how the shoulder works, stretching techniques, and common shoulder problems in kids.

“This is a new clinic we are offering the Mt. Sterling community that will have a positive impact on our youth,” said Gandee. “We hope people will join us for this educational seminar, which will also include fun activities for those involved.”

“I enjoy working with kids and helping them excel in their sport, while also ensuring they have the proper guidance and education to prevent common injuries,” said Dr. Rollins. “This clinic will allow us to raise awareness and help kids in the Mt. Sterling area.”
