Swimming for Duchenne


CureDuchenne and the Duchenne Therapy Network are pleased to provide a video and educational information on the swimming activities for those with Duchenne muscular dystrophy.

The pool is great for those with Duchenne.  It provides many benefits including:

             buoyancy to reduce the stress on muscles and joints

             mild resistance for low grade muscle work

             respiratory exercise to maintain or increase capacity and breath control

             a great place for social interaction with others


This video demonstrates some of the therapeutic swimming programs for those with Duchenne. Learn more pool activities.
