Inspired in two of our coaches’ stories we are here to tell you about swimming as rehabilitation.
Anna started swimming when she was 20 to recover from a surgery. Hiring a coach was a key to her success despite a later start.
Agustin has done a lot of sports, but after breaking the leg he had to choose swimming as his main sport again, because of its low impact.
And we think that there are a lot of you who wants to recover after some injury or start doing sport after some accident.
- There are a few main reasons why swimming is a good rehabilitation tool:
It is low impact. (Unless you are training to be an elite swimmer at which point you will be putting your body through a more intense, higher impact workout.)
- It is a form of active stretching – swimming technically will ensure full range of motion movements for many different body parts.
