Senior Citizens Are Looking for New Ways to Improve Overall Health
By Debra Rodzinak
We all age every day. It is a fact of life. How we age is another matter. Senior Care facilities, including home-care services, have grown by 25 percent since 2010 and the fastest growing segment of the population is the 65+ age group, according to The Wall Street Journal.
Many seniors want to remain in their homes as they grow older and are looking for ways to keep their bodies in good shape. Swimming is an excellent low impact workout many people can do daily. Combined with gentle adjustments to the back and spine, swimming gives those looking for ways to improve their overall health while improving their flexibility and range of movement a way to accomplish their goals.
Not many of us will ever reach the level of swimming expertise that Michael Phelps has, but just moving around in the water has its benefits too. With 66 million Americans projected to reach age 65 and older by 2025, many people are looking for exercises that will challenge their muscles and strengthen their bodies without the high impact on their joints. Swimming is a fantastic way to achieve all of these goals.
