Many people say swimming is a highly therapeutic sport to try. It enables you to relax and stretch your muscles safely without fear of pulling them or injuring them in any way. You would certainly expect to enjoy a safe and rewarding experience at your local pool. The last thing you would expect would be swimming pool injuries of any kind.
Breaststroke or front crawl?
We all have our preferred way of swimming. However, regardless of the stroke you use you would hope to leave the pool feeling better than when you arrived. It’s good to know most visits to a local swimming pool pass without incident, but there are some cases where someone suffers from one of a number of potential swimming pool injuries. If this happens to you, it is important to know what to do next.
What could happen to cause swimming pool injuries?
It’s not just in the pool that you may experience an injury. The areas around the pool are usually tiled and if they are chipped or broken you may cut your foot. Not only is this painful it can also lead to infection if the area is not properly cleaned.
Other possible areas of concern could include loose steps going down into the pool and changing areas that are not cleaned on a regular basis. While you would expect a swimming pool and its surrounding areas to be wet, you wouldn’t expect them to be unclean. This can lead to a build-up of algae that is very slippery indeed.
