Arthritis Treatment – Swimming

June 11, 2011
Swimming

Swimming

Exercise is an important treatment option for knee osteoarthritis.  And swimming is an excellent low-impact exercise that you can do even when your knees are hurting.  However swimming laps can get boring.  If you are tired of swimming on your own then it may be time to join and adult aquatic fitness program.  Most YMCA’s have masters programs that can help improve stroke mechanics, training techniques, and setting and maintaining fitness goals.

If you are not interested in joining a group then look to build a workout so that you are not just swimming lap after lap.  Mix up your routine with a kick-board, hypoxic breathing exercises, and variations of strokes.
