Swimming is the most underestimated exercise for treating varicocele. It has countless benefits for varicocele.
Minimal Vertical Load
Swimming is one of the only exercises in which the body is horizontal. This means that the heart does not have to pump blood against the force of gravity, leading to reduced blood pressure and an empty varicocele. Lying down reduces swelling of the varicocele for this same reason.
Furthermore, swimming is one of the only forms of exercise that cools the genitals, rather than heating them. This makes swimming critically important for those suffering from fertility issues. Moreover, it is important for healing the varicocele.
Core & Abdominal Health
Aside from the above, swimming moves the torso through all of its motions (forward and side flexion and extension, rotation, axial extension). It is also stimulating and strengthening for the muscles used to breathe. All this tones and massages all organs of the torso, giving swimming high efficacy for curing many bowel ailments. This is important because of the strong relationship of varicocele with bowel disorders.
It is also very easy to get into a flow or meditative state when swimming, therefore it a great exercise for improving quality of life and managing stress.
All this is not even mentioning the fact that swimming as a physical activity is great for improving cardiovascular and circulatory fitness.
So, get to the pool. But, remember: Don't wear wear tight trunks!
