It Takes a Swimmer to Understand a Swimmer's Injury.

My name is Dr. Chelsea Smith, Physical Therapist, and I have been swimming since I was 3 years old. In high school, I began to struggle with completing workouts due to shoulder aching and discomfort. With little guidance for managing this, I simply began to pull away from focusing on speed progression and moved into more leadership and coaching roles.

After completing physical therapy school, I began training for triathlons. During my swim training, I realized that my new understanding of body mechanics, joint dysfunction, and load progression had significantly improved my tolerance for swim training. I found myself thinking "I wish I knew this in high school!".

The Resilient Swimming Method.

Swim diagnosis specific programming developed by Dr. Chelsea Smith, PT, DPT and expert personal trainer Blaike Woodruff to help reduce current discomfort, prevent future injury, and ensure optimal performance both in and out of the pool. Simply choose the category that fits you best and work through our 16 week programs as an adjunct to or temporary replacement of your current dry land programming and swim regimen. This does not replace medical care, and it is advised to speak with a healthcare professional prior to initiating.
