It has always been said that swimmig is good for spinal diseases. Unfortunately I've noted otherwise. Could that be due to type of swimming?
I had a desctomy surgery in March this year in Munich in L5 where the Doctor also cut a small piece of the bone. Things were all OK till after 5 months from the surgery when previous pain started to develop again. New MRI showed that same prolapsed disc developed again. Doctors told me that I have to do fusion surgery this time.
The concerned issue here is swimming. All doctors told me that swimmig is the best exercise but in my case I noted that swimming leads the increased pain. Observing the situation, it appeared that pain disappears when I stop swimming for few days. I've been swimmig 3 times a week for 300-400 m doing both types, front stroke.
I'm now family confident that the pain is due swimming but is it due the type and movements. I love my swimming and love to continue. Should I stop my swimming or change my style.
Your thoughts are highly appreciated
