There are 3 common technique errors that lead to shoulder injuries in swimmers, and by doing these three drills Iâ€™m about to show you, youâ€™ll never have to sit on the sidelines again due to shoulder pain caused by bad technique
In 2000, a study was conducted by Toshimasa Yanai and James Hay called â€˜Shoulder Impingement in front crawl swimming: Analysis in Stroke techniqueâ€™, and what they found was interesting…to say the least. With 3D videography, they were able to determine what movements in freestyle lead to shoulder impingement. And this is something weâ€™ve seen at clinics for the last 6 years after working with thousands of swimmers, that very often, a change in technique, even small, can significantly reduce shoulder pain, or in many cases, eliminate the issue altogether.
In this video, Iâ€™ll share what those 3 technique errors are in plain and simple English, and the two ADDITIONAL stroke errors that I think were missing from this study.
