With summer in full swing, eager Minnesotans cannot wait to use the more than 10,000 lakes. Whether you are an active swimmer or just like to swim for fun, below are some tips to keep in mind to make sure you avoid injury and stay safe while swimming.

Swimming is great for exercise or leisure and can be a good activity for your joints. This is because swimming involves zero impact and is non-weight-bearing, which means that your joints do not experience the same amount of stress as they do for land activities, such as walking and running. Although swimming can offer many benefits, as with any activity, there is still the chance an injury or safety issue could occur. To stay injury free and safe this summer, here are some tips to keep in mind the next time you go swimming.
- Use proper swimming technique. The use of proper swimming techniques, along with strength and agility training, can help avoid common overuse injuries.
- Warm up. Take time to stretch since cold muscles are more prone to injury.
- Never dive in headfirst. Avoid diving into shallow or murky water or in water of uncertain depth.
- Never swim alone. Use the buddy system or select sites that have a lifeguard on duty.
- Use proper flotation devices. Life jackets are one of the best safety devices when swimming, especially for children. Air-filled or foam toys, such as “noodles” or inner tubes, should not be used as safety devices.
- Know the local weather conditions and forecast. You should not swim if there are strong winds and/or thunderstorms with lightning.
- Avoid alcohol. Consumption of alcohol should be avoided before swimming since it impairs judgment, orientation and thermal regulation of the body.
