Report on swimming benefits

Paul Ingraham ARCHIVEDMicroblog posts are archived and rarely updated. In contrast, most long-form articles on PainScience.com are updated regularly over the years.

Swim England is all about promoting swimming, so it’s hardly an unbiased source on this topic, but I don’t really doubt the findings of the report they commissioned:

The report particularly highlights the benefits of swimming and aquatic activities for people with mental health concerns or problems with their joints and muscles.

Or maybe a little doubt, because a 2014 review of aquatic therapy for miscellaneous musculoskeletal problems concluded it was no better than dry rehab. Hmm.

This is the MICROBLOG: small posts about interesting stuff that comes up while I’m updating & upgrading dozens of featured articles on PainScience.com. Follow along on Twitter, Facebook, or RSS. Sorry, no email subscription option at this time, but it’s in the works.
