Wanda’s Story | #LoveSwimming


Wanda was diagnosed with osteoarthritis in her early 30s and after suffering a serious back injury a few years ago, was told she would need a walking stick for the rest of her life. Determined not to let this defeat her, she followed her physio’s recommendation and started swimming. She wasn’t a confident swimmer at first so undertook lessons and describes her experience as absolutely life-changing.

The swimming sector has released the next chapter in the #LoveSwimming campaign, focusing on the physical health benefits of swimming and the positive impact of ‘prescribing’ swimming to aid a range of medical conditions such as Type 2 Diabetes, Arthritis and chronic pain.
