Abstract

Synchronized swimming is an aesthetic sport comparable to, in terms of its physical demands, those sports that require high metabolic conditioning. This article discusses injuries related to the demanding combination of strength, speed, and flexibility, including shoulder instability, lower back injuries, medial stress syndromes of the knee, and injury management treatment regimens.
