To Evaluate the Factors that Affect the Rates of Muscle Injury, Rehabilitation & Recovery, with a Focus on Common Shoulder & Knee Injuries Found in Swimmers

Tanisha Chheda

Abstract: The aim of my research project was to evaluate the factors that affect the rates of muscle injury, rehabilitation & recovery, with a focus on common shoulder & knee injuries found in swimmers. As a competitive swimmer for over a decade, I have realized that injuries are inevitable in any athlete?s life, however there are multiple factors that influence the probability of one. While I was training at the Padukone-Dravid Center of Sports Excellence, I was suffering with shoulder and back pain. My head coach, Mr. Nihar Ameen, introduced me to the Abhinav-Bindra Targeting Performance (ABTP), an advanced physiotherapy and rehabilitation center installed with technological devices from around the world that heavily depend on data driven analysis to deliver accurate measurements of relevant parameters of the musculoskeletal performance of an individual. A biomechanist conducted a biomechanical assessment to deduce the cause of the pain and identify other weak regions in my body. After rehabilitation and recovery, my performance in both the pool and gym improved. I was interested to learn about the science and biomechanics behind this recovery, as well as the factors that affect it.
