For example, suffering from varicose veins need to know how to properly distribute loads without harm to its own body.
Recently, fitness occupations have become very popular. There are no special contraindications to them, but lifting weights, as we know, negatively affects the vessels of the lower extremities. It is also not recommended to go to step aerobics. The fact is that veins, joints and spine during classes are experiencing stress steps. With a constant rise on the platform and the descent with it, the veins are experiencing fairly strong hydrodynamic loads. As a result — Varicosis, arthrosis, and in the preceding spinal pathology — osteochondrosis, progressing disc hernia and t.D. Therefore, people with a diagnosis of varicose veins are better suited for more comfortable types of training. For example, yoga, pilates.

Indeed, on the one side of skiing, it improves the work of the muscular venous pump, which accelerates blood according to the vessels. But on the other — legs are below the pelvic level, t.E. position looks like standing. Therefore, riding a walk is best combining with a regular walk. Still, the most suitable and safe sport with a given disease is considered to be. Water creates uniform pressure on the body, which contributes to improved blood circulation. The load of its own weight is not felt in the water muscles work active, it stimulates the outflow of venous blood. Swelling fall, syndrome «Heavy feet» goes away.
