Be mindful of body rotation. Never swim with a flat body as this limits the rotation of the shoulder along the axis of the spine. Develop a symmetrical way to rotate your body for an efficient breathing pattern and this will greatly reduce the risk of shoulder injuries. Stay tuned for more Swim Injury Tips from Arbutus Physiotherapy to ensure you have adequate shoulder strength and mobility to allow proper body mechanics while swimming.
