Bone mineral density (BMD) in swimmers has been a topic of debate for numerous years. In research, swimming has been correlated with low BMD (Carbuhn 2010; Guadalupe-Grau 2009;  Mudd 2007). These results are not unfathomable, as swimming is partially gravity assisted. However, this health problem likely increases the risk of acute injuries as well as increasing the…
