Swimmers rely heavily on the stability and flexibility of their shoulders to maintain optimum performance. At times the line between joint laxity and instability can be difficult to assess. What sorts of injuries do swimmers incur around the shoulder joint, and what are the latest treatment techniques available? Guest Dr. Scott Rodeo, Professor of Orthopedic Surgery at Weill Cornell Medical College and Co-Chief of the Sports Medicine and Shoulder Service at The Hospital for Special Surgery, speaks on both professional and personal athletic experiences to address this clinical challenge. Hosted by Dr. Mary Leuchars.
