RENDON MORALES, Pablo Anthony et al. Benefits of swimming in asthma. Rev Cubana Invest Bioméd [online]. 2017, vol.36, n.2, pp.150-158. ISSN 0864-0300.

Asthma is, until today, a chronic and incurable disease consisting on inflammation of the airways. It causes coughs, chest pains and trouble breathing. Although we face with an incurable disease, its symptoms can be minimized and controlled. In this review we will see how the practice of swimming is very beneficial for people with asthma to have a better quality of life, not only by reducing the symptoms of asthma but also because it increases the self-esteem of those who suffer from it.

Keywords : asthma; treatment; indoor pool; swimming; physical activity.
