Matthew,

I had a nasty back injury this past year and have been seeing some great results rehabbing it using swings.

If you're feeling any kind of "bad" soreness you're probably doing something wrong, whether it be too much weight or bad form. I'd suggest dropping your weight on swings until you confirm that your form is perfect and then start building back up again.

I started swinging with very low weights and have gradually increased. It took a long time, but I have managed to strengthen my back considerably while not reinjuring it or feeling any kind of bad pain.
