This swimming video segment will show how pools can be a great place for kids to play, how water can help protect vulnerable joints, and it will provide some safety tips for using swimming pools.

A swimming pool can be a sort of anti-gravity chamber, the buoyancy of the water decreases the amount of impact and twisting or turning forces that go through a joint during jumping, running and playing, decreasing the likelihood of causing a bleed or further injuries to a problematic joint.

As with any activity, or if you are having joint or bleeding problems, make sure you check with your physician or therapist to be sure you are ready to get started.
