Swimming

Swimming

Swimming is my favorite exercise.  It is low impact and strengthens my heart, lungs, joints, and muscles.

Your entire body is supported by water so your joints get to move in a stress free environment.  Your knees get to move without having to support the weight of everything above them.  Burn calories and fat while lubricating your joints and strengthening the muscles surrounding them.  Swimming is a great activity to build an exercise treatment program around.

Swimming is a great form of low impact exercise that will help you lose weight and ease the pain associated with your knee osteoarthritis.
