Illinois Edge Baseball Logo with patriotic colors

The Illinois Baseball Edge works with elite overhead throwing athletes 12-years old through the professional level using a personalized approach. To deliver personalized training, we have to tailor our approach to YOUR unique needs.

Our services are designed to create a baseline of where a player's current state (strength & mobility, velocity, control, etc.) and movement pattern begins, so that we can than demonstrate progress using player specific goals and development. This is a key concept in that positive results should be both demonstrable and measurable for that individual player over time. Once the baseline is understood, we create a plan that addresses your highest priority items.

In any given year, a player may need help with velocity, arm care, wake-up/warm-up, recovery, command, developing swing and miss "stuff", pitch design, or building a bigger motor through physical training and performance therapy. These needs almost always change from season-to-season as players grow and develop throughout their career, which is why re-assessment is crucial.

Our services are well positioned to adapt both to individual needs and to changes occurring in our sport over time. Our company is dedicated to on-going continuing education for our staff to take advantage of breakthroughs as they occur in the areas of sports medicine, motor learning, and skills acquisition, physical training, bio-mechanics, kinesiology, and coaching.


Athletic Edge and Wellness Logo

Athletic Edge & Wellness specializes in a continuum of care from physical therapy, to sports performance, and ongoing recovery and wellness for our local athletes; with an emphasis on the baseball and softball player.

Throwing a base/softball is one of the most stressful and complicated movements in sports. It requires the dynamic and coordinated muscular effort from head to toe. Any problem or small change in mechanics  can quickly lead to pain and injury.

As a Certified Champion Sports Performance Specialist, we have the additional training and certification to treat your athlete. By training with the best minds across the country, we can provide consistent high-quality individualized treatment that delivers faster results with excellent outcomes.
