Summer in safety: bye bye swimmer’s shoulder

09 June 2022 - Therapies -

If you are a lover of crawl and backstroke and you do not give up swimming even in winter with constant training sessions, the risk of dealing with problems involving the shoulders is high. Ever heard of the swimmer’s shoulder?

Known among the experts as rotator cuff tendinopathy, it is triggered by excessive training or by the overloading of the anatomical structures involved in the athletic gesture and it causes pain, muscle contraction, and functional limitation, impacting on quality of life and management of everyday life.
In fact, in order to avoid pain, you end up using the joint as little as possible until it becomes immobilized.
The result? The "frozen" shoulder makes every movement impossible, from chaining strokes to grabbing the coffee cup.

How to recover quickly?

Treating the shoulder with Laser Therapy (both MLS® and Hilterapia®) is the solution for those who want to get back in the water and to normality. With a small number of sessions, you reduce pain, inflammation, and oedema, there is an evident improvement in the function of the joint, and you facilitate the healing processes.

Together with concrete success stories, there are scientific confirmations:
