      Shoulder Injury Prevention
      Presented by USA Swimming and the Network Task Force on Injury Prevention.
      (April 2002)

      A series of exercises for the UN-injured athlete.

      Pain in the shoulder is common in swimmers. Shoulder function is highly
      dependent on the coordinated function of many muscle groups. These include
      the muscles around the shoulder, those that control the scapula or shoulder
      blade, muscles in the upper and lower back, as well as abdominal and pelvic
      muscles.

      Since the shoulder is an inherently unstable joint, muscle forces are
      critical for maintaining stability, proper motion, and painless function.
      The repetitive overhead activity of the swimming stroke can result in
      fatigue of these muscles. This in turn can lead to distinct changes in the
      function of the shoulder, resulting in the pain that is commonly known as
      �swimmer�s shoulder�.

      One of the major factors causing shoulder pain is overuse and subsequent
      fatigue of the rotator cuff muscles, scapular muscles, and muscles of the
      upper and lower back. Consequently, this fatigue can lead to shoulder
      instability and predispose a swimmer to shoulder pain. The risk of injury
      and pain is especially true for swimmers who swim with poor technique.

      It is well-established that a comprehensive program to develop strength,
      endurance, balance, and flexibility of the muscles is the most important way
      to prevent �swimmer�s shoulder". The exercises described in this review were
      chosen to develop these characteristics based on a sound knowledge of the
      muscles that are most important for optimal shoulder function.

                        Shoulder Injury Prevention
                        Presented by USA Swimming and the Network Task Force on Injury Prevention.
                        (April 2002)

                        A series of exercises for the UN-injured athlete.

                        Pain in the shoulder is common in swimmers. Shoulder function is highly
                        dependent on the coordinated function of many muscle groups. These include
                        the muscles around the shoulder, those that control the scapula or shoulder
                        blade, muscles in the upper and lower back, as well as abdominal and pelvic
                        muscles.

                        Since the shoulder is an inherently unstable joint, muscle forces are
                        critical for maintaining stability, proper motion, and painless function.
                        The repetitive overhead activity of the swimming stroke can result in
                        fatigue of these muscles. This in turn can lead to distinct changes in the
                        function of the shoulder, resulting in the pain that is commonly known as
                        �swimmer�s shoulder�.

                        One of the major factors causing shoulder pain is overuse and subsequent
                        fatigue of the rotator cuff muscles, scapular muscles, and muscles of the
                        upper and lower back. Consequently, this fatigue can lead to shoulder
                        instability and predispose a swimmer to shoulder pain. The risk of injury
                        and pain is especially true for swimmers who swim with poor technique.

                        It is well-established that a comprehensive program to develop strength,
                        endurance, balance, and flexibility of the muscles is the most important way
                        to prevent �swimmer�s shoulder". The exercises described in this review were
                        chosen to develop these characteristics based on a sound knowledge of the
                        muscles that are most important for optimal shoulder function.

                                    A series of exercises for the UN-injured athlete.

                                    Pain in the shoulder is common in swimmers. Shoulder function is highly
                                    dependent on the coordinated function of many muscle groups. These include
                                    the muscles around the shoulder, those that control the scapula or shoulder
                                    blade, muscles in the upper and lower back, as well as abdominal and pelvic
                                    muscles.

                                    Since the shoulder is an inherently unstable joint, muscle forces are
                                    critical for maintaining stability, proper motion, and painless function.
                                    The repetitive overhead activity of the swimming stroke can result in
                                    fatigue of these muscles. This in turn can lead to distinct changes in the
                                    function of the shoulder, resulting in the pain that is commonly known as
                                    �swimmer�s shoulder�.

                                    One of the major factors causing shoulder pain is overuse and subsequent
                                    fatigue of the rotator cuff muscles, scapular muscles, and muscles of the
                                    upper and lower back. Consequently, this fatigue can lead to shoulder
                                    instability and predispose a swimmer to shoulder pain. The risk of injury
                                    and pain is especially true for swimmers who swim with poor technique.

                                    It is well-established that a comprehensive program to develop strength,
                                    endurance, balance, and flexibility of the muscles is the most important way
                                    to prevent �swimmer�s shoulder". The exercises described in this review were
                                    chosen to develop these characteristics based on a sound knowledge of the
                                    muscles that are most important for optimal shoulder function.

                                              (April 2002)

                                              A series of exercises for the UN-injured athlete.

                                              Pain in the shoulder is common in swimmers. Shoulder function is highly
                                              dependent on the coordinated function of many muscle groups. These include
                                              the muscles around the shoulder, those that control the scapula or shoulder
                                              blade, muscles in the upper and lower back, as well as abdominal and pelvic
                                              muscles.

                                              Since the shoulder is an inherently unstable joint, muscle forces are
                                              critical for maintaining stability, proper motion, and painless function.
                                              The repetitive overhead activity of the swimming stroke can result in
                                              fatigue of these muscles. This in turn can lead to distinct changes in the
                                              function of the shoulder, resulting in the pain that is commonly known as
                                              �swimmer�s shoulder�.

                                              One of the major factors causing shoulder pain is overuse and subsequent
                                              fatigue of the rotator cuff muscles, scapular muscles, and muscles of the
                                              upper and lower back. Consequently, this fatigue can lead to shoulder
                                              instability and predispose a swimmer to shoulder pain. The risk of injury
                                              and pain is especially true for swimmers who swim with poor technique.

                                              It is well-established that a comprehensive program to develop strength,
                                              endurance, balance, and flexibility of the muscles is the most important way
                                              to prevent �swimmer�s shoulder". The exercises described in this review were
                                              chosen to develop these characteristics based on a sound knowledge of the
                                              muscles that are most important for optimal shoulder function.
