It is easy for young baseball players to deviate from good throwing mechanics given the significant physical changes that occur as they grow.  All too often, these players end up in clinic due to pain in the shoulder, elbow, arm, and back.  Most often these issues stem from the development of a throwing technique that helped them increase their velocity or avoid discomfort, at the cost of good form. 

This resource package provides clinicians with a series of exercises designed for the young baseball player. These exercises should be performed pre-season, mid-season, and off-season.

This resource package was designed to promote movement patterns that help prevent injury.

Ryan has been treating baseball players across the GTA from house league to the national level for the past 8 years.  He developed this resource package to help athletes both prevent injury, and spot problems early.

We hope to help you stay healthy, and on field.



This resource package is for any rehabilitation and healthcare professional who treats baseball players.

The instructors
Ryan Wells

Ryan Wells graduated from the University of Toronto with a Masters of Science degree in Physical Therapy. Prior to this he earned his Honors Baccalaureate of Science degree in Kinesiology from McMaster University. In 2019 he completed his Diploma of Manipulative Physical Therapy with the Canadian Physiotherapy Association.

It was his sports background and love of science that led Ryan to pursue a career in Physical Therapy. Ryan started his baseball career from the age of 6 and continued to play at a high level until his late 20’s. This first-hand experience has provided him with the knowledge of movement mechanics, injuries, treatment, and exercise prescription specific to the baseball player. Over the past 8 years he has worked with baseball players from house league to the national level. Throughout his academic career, Ryan has taken a keen interest in research, completing an undergraduate thesis in biomechanics. Furthermore, he was lead author for his graduate research project. This has provided him with the ability to evaluate research literature and apply it to his patients effectively.

Ryan has taken continuing education courses in Post Concussion Management, Soft Tissue Release, Functional Dry Needling, and is a Red Cross First Responder. In his spare time, Ryan likes to play baseball, football, and downhill skiing. He can also be spotted running, biking, and in the gym in the Bloor West community.
