What is "Little Leaguer's Elbow?"

It is a condition that affects the growth plate of growing children. Children who do excessive throwing (ie: pitching) develop a stress reaction of the growth plate on the inner aspect of the elbow (specifically, the medial epicondyle). The injury or stress reaction is called an epiphysitis. It is treated with a period of rest and physical therapy.
