36-Year-Old Triathlete Recovers from Shoulder Injury
Training for her first triathlon, 36-year-old Jody began noticing pain in her right shoulder while swimming.
Although gradual, the pain eventually progressed to hinder her daily activities. A doctor’s visit revealed a muscular diagnosis of tendinopathy secondary to hypermobility, and she was referred to Accelerated Sports Therapy & Fitness.
Jody’s treatment took a comprehensive approach to correct her muscular imbalance.
Treatment included the following:
Manual therapy for soft tissue restriction
Rotator cuff endurance training
Scapular control facilitation
Swim stroke modification
And finally, a training plan for her return to swimming
The outcome left Jody not only without pain, but also allowed for a symptom-free return to her triathlon training. Furthermore, Jody continued with Accelerated by participating in pilates and fitness training, improving her times and decreasing her susceptibility to injury.
