Default Forearm Pain (not elbow) with backhand

For three years now I have not been able to throw a backhand. I’ve tried everything. Technique, stretching, compression. Nothing works. My forearm blazes with pain even after mellow 4o% throws. My elbow dies not hurt. Anyone else have this? Going to work on teaching myself leftie.

Sounds like you are having referred pain. You need to have that checked out by a professional.
Find a sports chiropractor and book an appt.

Yeah, get a professional. And, no, I've never heard of that.

I'd place a small bet that it's in your wrist. If you're lucky, there will be a non-surgical cure, fixable with rehab. The right rehab.

Could be quite a few different things. Golf or tennis elbow can manifest itself as more forearm or bicep pain, particularly on the inner elbow area. Though, these usually manifest themselves as contraction pain, not extension.....such as a backhand throw. See your primary care physician for a referral to an orthopedic or sports medicine doc.

I have also never heard of this. Though it is not uncommon for me to get a pretty good burning/tingling pain on my first couple hard throws, especially in the cold. It subsides after a couple throws though.

Forearm pain can come from the shoulder as well. Do go to a Sports chiro or a D.O.

Yeah get looked at. When cleared to throw, take video and post in the form section. Less throwing repetitions and more assessing how you should throw I think would be best to get through at first, to make sure you aren't doing something every time that is bad for you. Again though, get checked out.

Depends on where in your forearm it is. Sounds like tennis elbow though.

Don't go to a chiro...go to a PT.

This is where I will respectfully disagree. PTs tend to have less training. There is a high chance that this is an referred pain, not something that PTs have the knowledge to handle. Do find a sports chiro though, they have extra training.
...
Even the strength couches are warning clients away from PTs now.

That's wild, I've never heard this. My close friend is a PT and she did 8 years worth of college plus a year of residency to get that degree. She's insanely knowledgeable and works hand in hand with actual physicians and medical professions at a hospital. How the hell does a strength coach know more than someone like her?
