When we swim under water, pressure on our body increases as we go deeper, but yet our body is not crushed due to this pressure. Why?

Expert Answer:

When we swim under water, our body is not crushed due to increasing pressure as we go deeper because our body tries to compensate for this pressure by creating an internal pressure which balances this external pressure. But, as we go deeper and deeper, there will be a depth at which our body feels uncomfortable resulting in serious injuries.
