Swimming Screening & Assessments
Physiotherapy screening in swimmers (pool or open water) is crucial to assist athletes to be physically prepared for the unique demands of the sport. Swimming places specific stress on the body, requiring strength, control and mobility.
Physiotherapy screening helps identify and address any underlying musculoskeletal issues, ensuring swimmers have the optimal range of motion, muscular balance, and injury prevention strategies in place. By assessing and addressing these factors, physiotherapy can enhance a swimmer's performance and reduce the risk of injury.
First Set your goal for Swimming
Whether it be your sights are set to make the next national team, finish your first Rottnest channel crossing or just simply to swim 100m we are here to help. For many to reach these goal injuries are often a major hurdle to overcome. In order to address these injuries or even better to prevent occurring in the first place a specific swimming screening assessment is the first step. This can be followed by a technique analysis at the pool with our network of trusted swimming coaches.
What is a Swimming Screen?
The swimming screening process is made up of a number of assessments looking at both strength, range of movement and control. We also take a deeper dive in to your current training loads and injury history. By identifying any limitations and areas of improvement we create a personalised program to improve strength, mobility and overall performance/technique!
