“Drowning Prevention & Water Safety”
Hello and welcome to a steamy summer edition of the HCAM News monthly medical segment To Your Health. I’m Dr. Jim Kenealy.
Taking a cool dip in a pool, lake or the ocean is a natural, refreshing way to escape the heat and humidity of summer. Swimming is also a great way to exercise – providing an excellent cardiovascular work- out, without putting a strain on the back or pounding away on weight-bearing bones and joints. That’s why aquatic exercises are recommend for those with arthritis, back problems or the elderly.
