Speed Up Your Recovery With a Dip in the Pool

By Stephen R. Farris

Once you begin chiropractic treatments, it's not uncommon for your doctor of chiropractic to suggest doing some form of exercise to help speed up the healing process. 

For those of you who have difficulty with normal movement, due to your back condition, he/she may recommend hitting the swimming pool. Swimming is underrated to a degree when it comes to exercise. Most folks have the idea that you just jump into the pool, know how to breathe underwater, and have fun splashing around.

However, swimming can actually be a great way to exercise your entire body. Here's a few things swimming can do for you:

  • It can increase your heart rate without stressing you out
  • Great way to tone your muscles
  • Builds strength
  • Helps to build endurance

Swimming basically helps to improve your overall strength, and is a great exercise for people with back problems. You might be familiar with the most common movement in swimming, which is freestyle, and chances are you've probably seen this method used in movies with swim scenes in them.

But that's only one way to build up strength and endurance. Check out these other movements as well:

  • Breaststroke
  • Backstroke
  • Sidestroke
  • Butterfly

These different types of swim styles work different muscle groups, from upper muscles, midsection, back, and legs. If your ailment or disability is somewhere else in your body, or you have different forms of arthritis, such as osteoarthritis, or suffer from joint pain, then this is your chance to step into the pool and get moving. 

If you're lucky to have a public swimming pool, or a facility that has an indoor pool open to the public, or one available at your gym, you might find out if there are swimming exercise groups you can join with instructors to guide you.

Once you get started, you could find yourself becoming more pain free. Just remember to continue your chiropractic treatments. Speaking of, your local chiropractor not only helps with the pain you might be feeling in your back, neck, and joints, they can also help in the areas of nutrition, fitness, and overall health, like the doctors of chiropractic that can be found at The Joint Chiropractic. 

The Joint has more than 600 nationwide locations, and no appointment is necessary to get started. Just walk right in! They also offer several payment plans that won't break your budget. So what are you waiting for, get started to a more pain free way of life and get back to being more active!
