Prevent Back Pain

Swim without a pool to prevent back pain

You don't need a pool to go swimming! Not if you are doing mat Pilates swimming. This
exercise helps strengthen the back muscles and may help reduce back pain. Make sure you
are keeping your belly pulled into the spine while you lift your opposite arm and leg to
prevent your back from arching. Life the right arm and left leg, then lower to the
floor. Repeat on the other side. As you become more comfortable and coordinated, repeat
for one minute without stopping. Swimming is a great cardio and strengthening exercise.
