Okay so I play softball year round on an awesome team, but right now it is high school season. I am the starting pitcher for both of these teams. At the end of March I fractured my wrist without knowing, then I kept pitching and fractured my forearm. When I finally got it checked I was put in a cast for less then 2 weeks and then a brace. Now I'm in therapy and I can do pretty much everything in therapy, but I can't pitch without pain and I can't pitch nearly as fast. I used to throw 65mph. Now im in the high 50's, and in softball that is a huge difference.

Any ideas on what I can do to have no pain when pitching?
