Swimming is a fantastic sport for people who suffer from injuries like knee pain and back problems. It's one of the few sports that don't require significant strain on your various muscle groups or joints. It's one you can do well into your golden years. But what do you do when swimming caused your injury? Some swimmers believe they need to stop swimming due to injuries, but this isn't true. Even with shoulder problems or issues with legs, ankles or back, you can modify your workouts to fit. This will benefit you in the long run because you will stay fit, continue to have good feel of the water and actually help reduce your recovery time.
