Australia's Leading Authority On Arm Care & Arm Pain
Are you suffering from Arm Pain, Arm Fatigue, Arm Soreness or Arm Stiffness and the only answer you’re getting is “Just rest it”, “Sit and relax for a little bit and it will go away” or “Pain is part of baseball”? These are common answers from coaches who in truth, have no idea how to eliminate arm pain.
Is your arm hurting you during the game? The day after a game? Are you unable to compete at training due to your pain? Are you thinking the only option to heal the pain is surgery? There is a solution, A Natural Solution.
DPA Baseball has had countless players over the years come to us suffering with various arm pain complications. After listening to the athlete and performing our assessments we are able to diagnose the contributing factors of their pain and then offer the player a customised program to eliminate the pain.
There are many contributing factors to pain, not just what the eyes can see. What makes DPA Baseball the leading authority on Arm Care and Arm Pain in Australia is we “Begin With The Pain” in our initial assessments.
It is not acceptable to be in pain all the time and it’s okay to ask, “WHY?” Arm Care, Arm Health and Arm Durability is paramount at DPA Baseball. This is what separates DPA from the rest of the pack.more
What Others Say About DPA Baseball
Since training with Ric and Greg Wickham at DPA Baseball my son's batting has improved immensely, and he is much more confident in his game. I put this down to two things:-
- The technical knowledge of Ric and Greg and their ability to pass it on.
- Ric & Greg's positive and personal teaching style which has helped to develop the mentality that if you work hard and believe in yourself, you can achieve your goals.
I have been apart of DPA for a few months now and it has helped me in a way I never thought possible. I have better arm strength and most importantly, no pain. I have also increased my pop time, blocking abilities, velocity, and bat speed. The best coaches I have ever had, and are continuing to prove it. Thanks so much to Greg and Ric.
DPA Baseball has helped me become a better physical and mental player of the game. The new age training and methods that are implemented by DPA Baseball to ensure that my performance has increased and continues to do so are world class. Coach Ric is by far the best hitting coach going around.
I started with DPA Baseball over 2 years ago and I've never felt better. DPA helped me with my mechanics and command over the years and I have no pain or stress anymore in my arm. Great guys willing to help out with anything baseball and couldn't recommend anyone better for a ball player.
My Son Nicholas who is a pitcher started working with Greg Wickham late January 2016. Before we found Greg through a personal friend, Nicholas was experiencing acute pain in his elbow ligament. As the season progressed the pain got more and more intense so in early November we sent him for an MIR. The findings were scary. His elbow ligament was “ thickened with a slight tear.” Nicholas was recommended to see one of the best sports Elbow and Shoulder surgeons in the country who told him that if he were to continue to pitch the same way he would suffer permanent damage within 18 months...
I have been working out with DPA Baseball for 3 years now. Since I began training at DPA, my arm has never felt better. I have gained velocity dramatically and my overall confidence in pitching has grown immensely. Training with DPA Baseball was the best decision I have ever made about my baseball career, not only is the atmosphere very positive, the information is world class. DPA is the only place to train if you want to be ELITE!
I met Greg by chance about a year ago, and had just sustained an arm injury from pitching with poor mechanics. Greg has made a massive difference to my arm and my quality of pitching. Now I am pitching better and faster than ever, and have a healthy technique that means very few problems in the future. The amount of information that Greg knows is simply astounding, and he has fantastic support by serious high level coaches in the USA. I couldn’t recommend DPA more highly.
