Correcting asymmetries in swimming
The aim of this project is to identify and correct bilateral and antero-posterior asymmetries in strength and flexibility of swimmers to enable improvements in swimming performance
Asymmetries in strength and flexibility are common among swimmers and are known to affect competitive performance. The objectives are to:
- Identify asymmetries among elite swimmers and their relationship to swimming technique and performance.
- Develop an intervention program to correct the asymmetries.
- Quantify the effects of the intervention on the asymmetries and performance.
This is an interdisciplinary project involving a team of biomechanists, strength and conditioning experts and physiotherapists.
