When you’re swimming, though you are loosening your muscles and joints and stretching your limbs and that can all help alleviate pain in your back.

If you’re seeking a way to get your life back on track, gain range of motion and experience less pain, swimming may do all of that — and more. Swimming will enhance all areas of your life and your health. But, don’t start swimming until you speak with your doctor and he has cleared you to start this type of a workout routine.

In addition to alleviating back pain, swimming alleviates pressure and pain in your back because it improves your circulation, strengthens your heart and enhances your lung capacity. Additionally you will be strenghtening your core muscels and those are what help support your back. All of this may lead to less pain.

Remember, you’re not out to win the Olympics, you’re looking to loosen your muscles and ease the pain you’re experiencing. Plan short swim sessions — maybe thirty minutes to start out — and swim at your own pace. If you want to lose weight as part of your overall swim routine (and less weight may help alleviate back pain) you will need to swim fast enough to raise your heart rate.
