TYPES OF INJURIES

  • The majority of water related spinal cord injuries result into diving into shallow water. Permanent paralysis is the most common result

  • Other diving injuries can include:

    • Broken teeth

    • Scalp injuries

    • Facial fractures.

SLIDE 4


How does a diving injury happen l.jpg
HOW DOES A DIVING INJURY HAPPEN?

  • The swimmer performs a head first entry that is too deep for the water conditions with little or no protection for the head and neck

  • The swimmers head comes to a sudden stop but the body continues moving

  • This can cause the vertebrae in the neck to dislocate or fracture, which can also damage the fragile spinal cord.

Preparation for a competitive dive l.jpg

How:

Stand with toes of one or both feet curled over the edge. This will help prevent slipping on a wet surface.

Hands will grip the leading edge of the starting surface (or handles, if supplied on the blocks, may be gripped)
