Shoulder Injury Prevention
FINA's Sports Medicine Committee created the following video that addresses the prevention of shoulder injuries in swimming. The video is the result of the efforts and experience of FINA Sports Medicine Committee member Dr. Jim Miller. Dr. Miller’s approach is unique because he starts with core exercises and then moves to the scapula and conclude with the rotator cuff. "It was done as one video to push this sequence rather than separate videos since everyone goes straight to the rotator cuff and ignores the power source and the link," explains Dr. Miller, the former team doctor for the USA Swimming national open water swimming team.
