Shoulder injuries can occur for a myriad of reason, but most injuries occur from serving or overuse injuries. If the shoulder injury occurs from serving, thereis usually a mechanically fault with the serve, serving too hard, serving excessively in a training session or weakness in the shoulder that is exposed with repetitive overload.
What can you do?
Ice the shoulder after each session and get your coach to check on the service action. Cutting down on the number of serves per session will also help.
What can MyPhysio do?
Checking the specific tendon that is involved, check for range of motion to prevent a frozen shoulder, pain reduction, service mechanics and ball toss position etc.
Using proper mechanics of using the trunk, core and legs are key to a consistent and fast serve. Good technique not only prevents injury but keeps service speed consistent from Set 1 to 3!
