Josh Johnson's injury problems due to posture?


There is some thought that Josh Johnson's injury problems are due to his posture.

Josh Johnson hasn’t gained an inch in height during his long stay on the disabled list. But he’s standing taller after a physical therapist suggested his shoulder injury might have stemmed from the slouching and bending that occurs with "tall man’s syndrome."

As a result, the 6-7 pitcher is watching his posture, standing straighter to relieve pressure on his scapula and wearing a customized shirt that keeps his shoulders back. When he walked into the clubhouse the other day, teammates that had not seen him in a while said he looked taller.

Well, it is worth a try. And who knows, maybe it will help.
