Swimming to cure back pain?
March 18, 2012 8:22am CST
My mom has been having problems walking and she has been doing some physical therapy recommended by her doctors. But everyone is telling her that the best therapy for back pain or leg muscles pain is swimming. She's in here early seventies and she has not been swimming for years so she's rather hesitant to go back to the pool. Perhaps it won't be a full swimming mode; but she was told even a light exercise in the water would do her some good. Should she give it a try?
@VivaLaDani13 Yeah, she's only in her mid 70s and in good health otherwise... It's just that her back and legs are giving her problems in the last 5 years or so... And she used to be very active too before that, always traveling and an avid golf player...

I'm happy to inform that she has been swimming regularly for few months now and it seems to help her a lot with her pain. My sister usually takes her swimming, but next time I visit her I'd probably be the one taking her since I need the exercise myself. You seem to enjoy swimming too, don't you?
