Project Title

Pathoanatomy of elite swimmer’s shoulder and symptom development: A multicentre MRI study

Chief Investigator

This document is the information provided to participants prior to commencing the study.

Project Introduction:

This project will help to clarify the relationship between MRI findings and the development of shoulder pain in elite swimmers. Abnormal MRI findings can lead to decisions about treatment directions and may result in training modifications, by having an understanding of what findings are “normal” among elite swimmers this may have a direct impact on how we treat and modify training loads amongst our elite swimmers. The project will also determine the capacity to use MRI findings to predict future response to training load and development of symptomatic overuse injury of the shoulder.
