This lecture is part of the following course:
The Mechanics of Swimming


This course is aimed at therapists treating swimmers with painful shoulders. The information is delivered via a case study approach appropriate for post-graduate learners. The learner will be able to identify the classification system for a swimmer's shoulder pain as well as the pathway to injury. The normal and pathological mechanics of the four swimming strokes will be discussed from both a research/muscle standpoint, as well as from a dry-deck perspective (visually watching videos). Treatment strategies for the shoulder pain as well as for returning to swim programs are discussed. The course closes with marketing methods for the learner to be able to capture a larger portion of the swimmers’ market.USA Swimming Foundation
