    Arthritis vs. swimming hard

    Have other swimmers fought the battle of arthritis and won?

    I have "age-related" arthritis in my neck, and a fellow swimmer has "age-related" arthritis in his shoulders.

    I can't have my neck replaced. Je je. He doesn't want to replace his shoulders.

    THUS:

    Any swimmers out there done enough strength training to get the muscles to overpower any age-related arthritis?
    I have done PT and am religiously doing the PT exercises, but I have a lot of pain in my neck when I swim (turn to breathe). I also am being as vigilant as possible re posture when working, and alignment and technique when swimming.

    I want to swim as long as I can! I'm just getting old(er).

    Curious re what other swimmers with similar issues are doing.

    Gracias! Izzy

    Forgive me! I searched the forum before I posted this query, and now at the bottom I see several threads devoted to it.

    Forgive me!

    Carry on!
