Sink or Swim9th November 2019
Don’t let swimming injuries drown you this season. The repetitive nature of swimming means that niggles quickly become chronic injuries which often require months of rehabilitation. Research has shown that 84% of regular swimmers carry a swimming injury.
Our resources can stop that from happening to you. They can help you not only treat, but also prevent swimming injuries from happening in the first place. There are also two excellent cheat sheets to help you identify stroke technique issues which may be contributing to the problem.
The advice sheets explain what the injuries are, how they happen, and how you can treat them, and helpfully include interactive links to videos too.
In this set of resources, we cover:
- Stroke technique and injury cheat sheet
- Common swimming injuries cheat sheet
- Sink or swim? Treating and preventing swimming injuries
- Swimmer’s Shoulder – advice and exercise rehabilitation leaflet
- Breaststroker’s Knee – advice and exercise rehabilitation leaflet
