Medial Epicondylar Apophysitis

Little League elbow (medial epicondylar apophysitis) is a term used to describe an overuse injury often sustained by children and adolescent baseball players, usually those who spend a lot of time pitching. Excessive overhead throwing places too much strain on the growth plate of the medial epicondyle, which is a bony protuberance on the inner side of the elbow. The muscles of the forearm attach onto the medial epicondyle by way of tendons, as does one of the ligaments in the elbow that provides stability to the joint when throwing.
