Common Swimming Injuries

Neck and shoulder injuries are among the most common injuries that swimmers face.

Neck and shoulder injuries from swimming include:

  • Irritation and inflammation in the shoulders
  • Rotator cuff tendonitis or tears
  • Shoulder impingement syndrome, which is a result of pressure on the rotator cuff muscles from part of the shoulder blade when the arm is lifted overhead
  • Tears in the cartilage around the shoulder socket
  • Neck and low back pain
  • Bicep tendonitis

Swimmers might also experience knee injuries. Stress on the knees can result in pain under or around the kneecap or at the inside of the knee.

Swimmers who experience pain or soreness for more than 48 hours should seek medical attention. The experts at UPMC Sports Medicine can work with you to evaluate and  treat most common swimming injuries to help prevent more serious long-term effects.
