Tall-Man Syndrome?

Monday, September 5, 2011

What's to blame for Josh Johnson's injury troubles? His height, apparently:

Johnson said a physical therapist he has worked with offered him the "Tall Man's Syndrome" diagnosis, which affects tall athletes who are constantly "bending over and your shoulder is not in a good place.

"You start throwing, you start leaning over when you're throwing. It snowballs and you're shoulder is not in the correct place."

Johnson said he has been working on maintaining a proper posture to relieve pressure on his scapula and wearing a special form-fitting shirt. He said he walked in the clubhouse last week and was told by teammates that he looked taller.
I call bullshit. My posture is terrible, and I'm 5'10". It has nothing to do with height, and everything to do with being a man.
