Common Swimmer Injuries in Toledo

The shoulder is the joint most commonly affected by swimming injuries or overuse.

Shoulder injuries may include rotator cuff impingement pressure on the rotator cuff from part of the shoulder blade or scapula as the arm is lifted.

Biceps tendinitis (painful inflammation of the bicep tendon) and shoulder instability, in which structures that surround the shoulder joint do not work to maintain the ball within its socket, all can result from fatigue and weakness of the rotator cuff and muscles surrounding the shoulder blade.

Knee injuries that involve the tendons and ligaments (breaststrokers' knee) are common. Breaststrokers may also experience hip pain from inflammation of the hip tendons.

Back problems, including lower back disk problems or another problem at the junction between the spine and pelvis, termed spondylolisis, may be increased by the dolphin kick often used in competitive swimming.
