About

Swimming can cause shoulder pain due to scapular dyskinesis. Proper scapula movement is necessary for efficient swimming strokes and to avoid injury. Studying the effects of autogenic and reciprocal inhibition muscle energy techniques on swimmers with scapular dyskinesis can lead to effective interventions and reduce shoulder injuries

Full description

Efficient swimming strokes require proper positioning of the scapula. Scapular dyskinesis (SD) is a condition where normal scapular kinematics are altered due to injury or changes in muscle activation. Swimmers, who are considered overhead athletes, have risk of developing SD. Even individuals who do not experience symptoms can have SD, and it may lead to future shoulder injuries. Early diagnosis and treatment of this condition can prevent it from progressing and minimize the risk of injury. Additionally, using autogenic and reciprocal inhibition muscle energy techniques can enhance the activation of the appropriate muscles responsible for scapular movement, which can lead to more effective interventions, improved swimming performance, and reduced injury risk. he intervention protocol (Muscle energy techniques to the upper fibers of the Trapezius, Levator Scapulae, Pectoralis Major, Latissimus Dorsi) will be conducted for 8-14 minutes over 3 weeks with 12 sessions/4 times a week. Outcomes measure will be assessed after the intervention period and data will be analyzed.
