There is an anecdote in which an intellectual was being
transported in a small boat by a person of scarce academic resources,
when when trying to mock this poor man he asks “young… do you
know? Of mathematics? And the poor boatman answers NO, and
the unfriendly scholar tells him “because he thinks you’ve lost 30%
of your life, later he asks him if he knew about philosophy and when
he answered with a second refusal, the scholar in question tells him
that he had he lost another 30% of his life, and he maintained it
until suddenly the boatman, smiling, asked him, “Sir, do you? Can
you swim? The intellectual in question responds, “naturally not”
and the boatman ends up telling him “well, pretend that you lost
100% of your life because the ship sinks”. Every time I see a patient
with tension headaches or spinal problems or even insomnia, an
important point of recommendation is intense exercise, which
is often not walking or doing the job, it is an appropriate athletic
behavior with plan and an added diet, which if done to the
letter would greatly reduce the problems of spine, metabolism,
overweight and many more; I always put swimming ahead of other
sports that add to the rehabilitation due to a series of advantages
that other sports activities do not have, such as:
a) Exercise in deadlifts and do not injure yourself more by
contact and spinal column or knees and even hips.
b) Improve your breathing, not least in patients with sleep
problems or anxiety disorders.
c) It improves the paravertebral muscles, which are the main
supporting muscles of the spine, balances them and allows the
spine to regenerate; Here It Is Important to Point Out That They
Do Not Serve The Chiropractic, It Is An Aberration And They
Are Not Doctors.
d) It allows you to better socialize and acquire better sports
e) It is excellent for the heart, lungs and digestive disorders.
f) We can mention many advantages of swimming and it
would be a very long list, but it goes without saying that the
people who really start learning to swim and do it not only
improve their health, but also manage to overcome a challenge
that was saved in the chest of the defeats.
g) One more point: the only ones I’ve heard who do not
recommend swimming are often physiotherapists, and
sometimes I think it’s because if people swim they would be
out of work.
