Do You Suffer From Swimmer’s Shoulder?

Despite the benefits of swimming, there are shoulder injuries that can result from poor swimming technique such as “Swimmer’s Shoulder”.

A patient at my clinic recently was suffering from Swimmer’s Shoulder as a result of swimming the Butterfly stroke. The Butterfly stroke places more stress on the shoulder than any other stroke and is often the cause of swimming related shoulder pain.

Swimmer’s Shoulder and other swimming related shoulder injuries can be avoided by using proper swimming technique. If you are experiencing swimming shoulder pain get physical therapy to relieve the pain and see a swimming coach to improve your stroke.
