Whether you are an athlete who swims competitively, or a recreational lap swimmer, you can end up developing swimmer’s shoulder. Although swimming is considered a low-impact sport, the repetitive arm movement can cause irritation in the shoulder joint and the surrounding muscles. Inflammation and stress of the tendons, ligaments, and muscles are common in the shoulder after repeated use. This condition is called swimmer’s shoulder. There are preventative measures that can be taken to help keep your shoulders functioning properly.
One way to help swimmer’s shoulder is through regular adjustments with your Chiropractor. A misaligned spine can cause the muscles and ligaments to pull differently, which can lead to muscle spasms, inflammation, and eventually shoulder pain. Chiropractic adjustments to the spine and shoulder can help the shoulder joint function properly and help to restore range of motion in the shoulder.
