Pitcher: They both can be equally impairing, especially if the require surgery. With both areas if it is not a surgical problem it is important to evaluate the throwing motion and the whole body kinetic chain to decern if a deficit is the cause of your shoulder or elbow pain. Important to not just focus on the area with symptoms but also focus on why you got the symptoms from throwing.
