I normally throw light for around 20 minutes before a game, with around 20 "hard" warmup pitches, so if issues exist they typically show up in this time.

However, I am not the scheduled starting pitcher this Saturday. I will likely play left or center field. So my arm will still get a little action but not be asked to throw a whole game.

Of course, there is a decent likelihood I'll be the relief pitcher.

I'm personally not buying into the concept of something as dramatic as a frozen shoulder, as I did not have all of the painful problems associated with that. Frozen shoulder resolution also occurs over a matter of months, not hours. Adhesions (i.e. scar tissue) breaking up, however, is along the lines of what I initially pondered and I'm still thinking (or perhaps just hoping) that this is the case.

Scar tissue buildup is common in the arms of pitchers. I've been throwing 15-30 games a year for most of the last 13 years so it's not like a major league workload, but....

VA: can you do an hour of throwing before actual game day, to see how the arm and shoulder feel? might be a good idea to have that test run, just to get a sense of whether this will have any impact.

Usual disclaimer: this is general commentary. Rely on your personal physician or provider for evaluation and diagnosis.

What you describe with the "popping noises" and increased range of motion indeed sounds like resolution of adhesive capsulitis (aka 'frozen shoulder') which is common among athletes at a younger age and among non athletes esp men in their fifties. That being your "pitching arm", it's likely that you did indeed have some component of adhesions. Provided there is no pain, it's less likely that you have torn something you are not supposed to (e.g. rotator cuff muscles and their attachments).

Age and use changes the dynamics of connective tissue. It becomes more brittle and easier to tear. At the same time arthritic changes can create hard tissue where it is not supposed to be. Be alert for changes in range of motion, strength and especially neurologic symptoms (pins and needles, loss of sensation, asymmetric weakness). Otherwise, all the data suggest maintaining exercise habits including strength and range of motion and cardio contributes to longevity and overall health.

While riding in the car on Sunday my left shoulder (my pitching arm) began making some popping and crunching noises, accompanied by tingling, that I had never experienced before. It was a strange feeling. It wasn't painful at all - if anything it felt more like my arm was now less constrained - like the plastic wrap had been removed.

I was very cautious going into my workout this morning. It was a little stiff at first but was then fine, if not better than ever.

So wtf happened? Was this scar tissue breaking up? My left arm's range of motion is now close to that of my right, which it hasn't been in many years.

I'm not sure if this is a bitchfest or not. It might be a good thing. Time will tell, I guess, especially when I hit the ball field on Saturday.

It seems half the women at the gym get pissed if you act like you notice them. The other half are pissed if you don't.
