The purpose of this study was to find out the significant differences of effectiveness of aquatic exercises versus dry-land concentric-eccentric exercises on swimmer’s shoulder. The researcher collected the data on twenty (N=40), Male subjects with swimmer’s shoulder between the age group of 18-26 years (Mean ± SD: age 21.43±2.38 years, height 173.86±3.91 m, body mass 68.46±3.75 kg) having a history of injury due to joint instability, ligament and capsule laxity, shoulder impingement due to swimming were selected. The subjects were purposively assigned into two groups 20 in each group, with respective set of concentric-eccentric exercises. Group A (Dry-land) and Group B (aquatic) were given concentric-eccentric exercises for 3times/week for a period of 6 weeks. To compare the mean differences between the two groups, mean, S.D and t-tests were computed by means of Statistical Software. To test the hypotheses, the level of significance was set at 0.05. It is concluded from the above findings that significant differences were found Swimmers with dry-land exercises have higher mean values as compared to swimmers with aquatic exercises showing statistically significant differences.
