With the shoulder’s ability to rotate 360 degrees the risk of injury increases and shoulder injury prevention is vital for softball players. It is very common to hear that someone tore their rotator cuff or hyperextended their shoulder because of the complexity of the muscles in the shoulders. ArmPro Bands are a great injury prevention tool.
