Understanding Triathlon Injuries

Triathlons, encompassing swimming, cycling, and running, require exceptional endurance and versatility. However, the repetitive nature of these activities can lead to specific injuries. Some of the common triathlon injuries include:

Swimmer's Shoulder:

  • Description: Intense and repetitive arm movements during swimming can contribute to shoulder injuries, such as rotator cuff issues or impingement syndrome.

  • Treatment: Our experienced therapists employ targeted exercises and rehabilitation strategies to address swimmers' shoulder injuries, promoting pain relief and optimal shoulder function. We collaborate with Swim Smooth to assess and promote drills that address possible underlying causes of shoulder injury in swimmers, helping you get back to swimming and optimising your stroke.

Runner's Knee:

  • Description: The constant pounding of the pavement during the running leg of a triathlon can lead to conditions like patellofemoral pain syndrome, commonly known as runner's knee.

  • Treatment: Our team designs tailored plans to alleviate runner's knee symptoms, combining physiotherapy, strengthening exercises, and biomechanical analysis to enhance running efficiency.

Achilles Tendinitis:

  • Description: Overuse in both running and cycling segments may contribute to Achilles tendinitis, characterised by pain and inflammation in the Achilles tendon.

  • Treatment: We provide comprehensive care, including physiotherapy, stretching exercises, and biomechanical assessments, to address Achilles tendinitis and prevent recurrence.
