Course material

SWIM SCREENING AND INJURIES COURSE – WITH PARYS EDWARDS – via zoom meeting;

Outline

Do you treat swimmers and wonder where to start, or how to identify quickly and effectively what is the source of the injury? Do you find that many of your swimmers’ battle with recurrent niggles? When faced with an injured swimmer in clinic, we need to efficiently identify the cause of the injury and also address the symptoms without watching them in the water. That’s why I devised a land-based approach to screening my swimmers – it guides my diagnostic process as well as highlighting the rehab and treatment that is needed.

Why is swimming a unique sport?
For a start there are no ground reaction forces but instead the resistance of the water to propel through. Hence the body works in an entirely different way to many other sports.

From a young age, swimmers commit to a high volume of training. This on its own carries a risk.

Finally the nature of this sport involves taking thousands of repetitive strokes each session. The cumulative effect of this means swimmers are prone to pain due to micro-trauma (small repetitive trauma). This can be accelerated by hyper or hypo-mobility (swimmers tend to be hyper-mobile), poor core or scapula control or inadequate technique.

Swimming injuries
The most common issue reported by swimmers is not surprisingly shoulder pain, followed by knee and lower back pain.

Most of the shoulder and knee related injuries are sustained in the water.

Swimmers are encouraged to do strength work to prevent injuries and help them get faster, yet land-based training is responsible for many injuries, including the majority of back pain.

How does screening help?
By screening the athlete for flexibility, strength and control issues that most commonly result in swimming injuries, we can highlight areas of concern to prevent injuries before they happen or identify why a swimmers struggles with recurrent injuries.

The screening is used to devise a land-based program specifically for each swimmer and will reduce ongoing niggles or recurrent pain.

Probably the most beneficial effect of the program in the eyes of the patiwnt will be to improve those all important swim splits by facilitating better technique and promoting consistent training through lack of missed sessions from injury.

This 3 hour crash course in treating swimmers will cover:

1) Swim biomechanics with real time video analysis to provide a true appreciation of this demanding sport.

2) A quick but comprehensive screening tool to use with your swimmers and triathletes.

3) The strength exercises you can prescribe based on the results of the screening tool.

4) We will discuss the manual treatment interventions I have found most effective. Please note this is not a comprehensive course on shoulder treatment or techniques – that would take much more time – but this will provide a very useful tool for managing your swimmers and triathletes in clinic.
