Swimming is a great, full-body workout. It builds muscle, improves your cardiovascular strength, and even helps your brain! Those benefits are incredible, but if you aren’t careful, you can wear out your shoulders in the pool, causing overuse injuries in your rotator cuff. Some injuries require physical therapy treatment, while others may need surgery to fully heal.
