I often hear a lot of treatments about low back pain , among which swimming is the most popular. Does swimming really have the effect of healing and preventing back pain?
The cause of low back pain is very complicated. The most common cause is strained low back pain, which is because the patient has been subjected to excessive pressure on the waist for a long time in daily life, such as bending for a long time.
But before the waist starts to feel pain, one of them is often overlooked. This is the first muscle to counter these pressures – the trunk muscles. If we have strong muscles, the waist can take on more stress, and the chance of injury or strain can be reduced.
The function of swimming is to be able to exercise muscle strength in the water, and also to use the buoyancy in the water to relieve the joints that are usually compressed, the waist is most obvious; in addition, some movements that cannot be done on land can be done during swimming.
Swimming is a good opportunity to move your waist. Therefore, swimming is indeed a good exercise to prevent back pain from the perspective of preventing low back pain.
If you have a friend who has a backache, you may wish to take some time each week to enjoy swimming and stay away from the pain of back pain.
