Chiropractic Care for Swimming Pains

By Donna Stark

Just because most community pools are closed for the season, that doesn't mean you can't continue with your water exercises indoors. But just like all the other workouts you engage in, it is important to remember that you can still walk away with aches and pains after swimming those laps if you aren't careful. The fact that swimming is considered a low-impact exercise doesn't mean you shouldn't take the proper steps to reduce the risk of pain and injury.

The Pains Associated With Swimming

Swimming is an ideal way to work out because it can be less taxing on the body than some of the other exercises people enjoy. However, that doesn't mean it is risk-free. Every time you jump into the water and engage your muscles, you are putting your body at risk for injuries. That's why your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic want to share some of their favorite safety tips. Take a look at what they recommend below.

  • Warm up with stretches and light movements before you start your laps
  • Give your body time to acclimate to the workout by gradually increasing intensity and speed
  • Always use proper technique and form when swimming
  • Protect your eyes by wearing goggles
  • Gradually slow the workout when finished so your body can come back to neutral
  • Wear slip-proof shoes when walking on the pool deck and in the locker room

Chiropractic Care for Swimming Pains

Sadly, even when you do follow the advice of your local chiropractors when you go for a swim, aches and pains can still occur. If you are struggling with any type of discomfort, and are looking for a natural way to heal, you may want to head in for a chiropractic adjustment. Chiropractic adjustments place the body in proper alignment and help ease muscle tension, which can do wonders for those aches and pains you are experiencing. They can also reduce any inflammation, stiffness, or joint dysfunction in the body.

Are you ready to plan your visit to The Joint Chiropractic? The best time to get an adjustment is within a couple of days of feeling pain or soreness, so don't put it off longer than you have to. And with over 600 locations to choose from, extended hours, and walk-in availability, you can count on getting the help you need immediately! You can also count on getting back into the pool in no time.
