Physical Therapy

Freestyle It

The shoulder joint is one of the most complex and vulnerable joints in the body, as it sacrifices stability for range of motion. The freestyle stroke utilizes a wide range of motion and therefore, normal muscle firing sequence is imperative for pain-free swimming.  Freestyle can be broken down into 3 phases: hand entry/reach, pull through, and recovery. Each of these phases requires high demand and activity from multiple muscles at different times. Colwin et al (Breakthrough Swimming. Champaign, IL: Human Kinetics; 2002) utilized EMG analysis to measure muscle activity throughout the freestyle stroke. These muscles were the most active in their respective stages:

  • Reach – Deltoid, Upper trapezius, Rhomboids
  • Pull Through – Pectoralis major, Serratus Anterior, Latissimus Dorsi, Subscapularis
  • Recovery – Posterior/middle Deltoid, Rhomboids, Serratus Anterior, Infraspinatus

So why is this important?  Due to the repetitive nature of swimming, it can place stress on the shoulder girdle musculature and glenohumeral joint. Pain or difficulty performing freestyle can be tied to weakness or poor endurance in the muscles utilized during the corresponding phase. Adding scapular and shoulder strengthening into your program can prevent injury and improve stroke biomechanics.

Whether you are new to the sport, looking for pointers for your technique, or addressing shoulder weakness, the staff at Lakeshore Sport & Fitness is here for you.  LSF professional swim instructors can be reached at:  LPAquatics@lakeshoreSF.com.  Appointments with Lakeshore Physical Therapy to address shoulder pain can be made here:  www.lakeshore-pt.com.
