Little League Elbow | Testing & Diagnosis

Your child’s doctor will want to know all about his sports history:

  • how many sports he plays each year;
  • how many leagues per sport;
  • and how often he throws on a weekly basis.
The doctor will examine the elbow to see how well it moves around, where the pain is and whether there is swelling. An X-ray, which will show any changes that might have occurred where the cartilage meets the bone, and it will also show any damage to the growth plate.
