Hi there,

I have just been diagnosed with cervical arthritis. I am suffering very mild symptoms currently. I get slight twinges about once a week currently.

I swim alot and currently do 3 miles a week mostly front crawl. My GP seems to think that this is perfectly okay to continue with.

Does anyone who has suffered with cervical arthritis agree with this?



  • i tend to do Brest stroke .but even when i do front crawl or Brest stroke i am in pain a few hours later! carnt win ..i carnt walk far {it hurts} so i like to swim .i have swam all my life its my thing .all i can say to you is do what you can and do it within your limits.happy swimming
