Painful swimmer's shoulder an epidemiological and clinical review

, : Painful swimmer's shoulder an epidemiological and clinical review. Medicina dello Sport (Turin) 43(4): 251-260

Swimming is well known to sport doctors on account of swimmer's shoulder. Having reviewed the most recent literature on the topic, the paper examines the current epidemiology of swimming injuries. One hundred and twenty-eight swimmers completed a technical and clinical questionnaire and the data obtained confirm the prevalence of this injury in swimming. The lesion in studied from an etiopathological, clinical and prophylactic point of view in order to indicate a methodical way of managing the generic diagnosis of "painful swimmer's shoulder." Impingement syndrome and shoulder instability, either alone or in association, are the most frequent anatomo-pathological factors implicated in these painful syndromes.
