Recently I came across a remarkable device that has become a part of my home prescribed rehabilitation program. Swimming has always been highly rated as one of the most beneficial therapies for rehab. I have been practicing chiropractic medicine for 35 years, you might say I am a veteran of this business. I am always looking to improve and build on new methods to benefit my patients. When I strapped on the bowswim and gave it a whirl I immediately felt it’s benefit for low back pain sufferers.

I have expensive equipment in my office that doesn't accomplish what the bowswim can do for the lower back. Strapped in correctly, the bowswim offers axial rotatory decompression. What I mean by that is as you swim away from the anchored pole you elongate and slightly rotate your spine back and forth while gently reducing the pressure within the spinal discs. As the vertebrae are separated, pressure is reduced within the disc (intradiscal pressure) until a vacuum is formed. The vacuum “sucks” the gelatinous center of the disc back inside, thereby reducing the disc bulge or herniation.
The benefit doesn't stop there. While elongating the spine you are building and facilitating your core muscles. Strengthening of the core muscles combined with decompression induces motor learning in the brain, activating the smaller stabilizing and core muscles, which are weak in almost every low back pain patient.

Specific Achievable Differences

Tri-Athletes marvel at BOWSWIM®’s efficient Swim Training Without Turns workout. The comfortable, custom fit and flexibility of our belt, the degree of FLEX built into the pole, and the science of a nylon tether with tether adjuster combine to provide surprisingly intense workouts, and increased endurance.
