Ori Sela and his colleagues at WEST (Water World Swimming Therapy) have created on online and practical system to help people with shoulder pain but who want to continue swimming:

Course 1 (coupon here) teaches how to train with an injury. “You do not work on your painful area, but learn how to treat and heal your shoulders, neck, elbow and wrist without even touching the painful area and letting the water do the job for you,” says Sela.

Course 2 (coupon here) is for open water swimmers to learn how to train while facing an injury. “You can work on your legs, dolphin kick, core muscles and more. In this WEST course, people learn how to use the pain to strengthen your body, elongating your muscles, loosen the painful part(s), and learn how to swim a little differently.”

Participants receive 5 workouts and videos for each workout in order to better understand the drills.

I don’t believe in resting when getting injured. It is bad for the brain, bad for the body, energy, heart and much more. So if you know how to swim at least 300 yards (260 meters) or more and you feel pain in your shoulder, neck, scapula, wrist, and elbow, WEST can help.”
