Welcome to the Men's Water Polo 4 Nations tournament in Thousand Oaks CA in March of 2012! Our goal at this tournament is to gain an understanding of the kinds of injury and the mechanics of injury in Water Polo. In this post our guests will talk about one of the most common injuries in the sport: the shoulder!
Water Polo throws require extreme external rotation of the humerus with a more elevated and extended elbow than that seen during the baseball pitch during late cocking and acceleration.
Biomechanics of a typical water polo block, throw and goalie position.
One of the very unique components of this sport is that the athletes do not have a ground reaction force upon which to generate power. Their feet are not on the ground, as in the golf swing or the baseball pitch or basketball/volleyball jump.
