Are you a swimmer with shoulder pain?
Getting pain while you’re swimming?
Don’t worry, in fact 91.3% of swimmers will experience shoulder pain at some point in their life.
With such a high percentage, even Aquaman has experienced shoulder pain.
Pain located in your shoulder during or after swimming may indicate you are dealing with a rotator cuff tendinopathy.
We know it sounds bad however, we’ve helped many swimmers return back to their sports in our Southampton, Whiteley and Midhurst clinics.
Multiple factors can cause a rotator tendinopathy.
Some of the most common causes are overtraining, poor rest periods, poor stroke mechanics, lack of flexibility and weakness of the shoulder muscles.
The symptoms or characteristics of rotator cuff tendinopathy are pain in the shoulder that will gradually increase with training, growing weakness of your shoulder or in some cases local swelling.
Our experts based in Southampton, Whiteley and Midhurst will help you get into the water in record time.
The first step will be a thorough assessment to diagnose and help you to understand why you might be experiencing shoulder pain.
We will treat your shoulder pain with an exercise program tailored specifically to your needs as well as advice on stroke mechanics and rest periods.
To compliment the exercise program we can help speed up the recovery using shock wave therapy, which is a highly effective and proven treatment for any tendinopathies.
