Gymnastics and prevention of varicose veins
27 apr 2015
In order to prevent varicose veins and maintain venous tone, therapeutic exercises bring certain benefits. With proper exercise, therapeutic exercises will help relieve heaviness in the legs, improve venous outflow and partially eliminate venous congestion. Gymnastics is especially useful for those who have a sedentary job (or a sedentary lifestyle) - programmers, writers, drivers, hairdressers, office workers, sellers, etc.
A daily walk in the fresh air is the most affordable type of exercise for varicose veins to improve blood circulation. But running can be an unfortunate choice of exercises with "running" varicose veins, as body shaking during running can adversely affect the state of the veins and the well-being of a person. Biking and especially swimming are also recommended for varicose veins.
Prevention recommendations for varicose veins (at home and at work):
- walk at least 45 minutes a day
- wear comfortable shoes with low or medium heels (up to 5cm.)
- Avoid tight clothing (trousers, belts, etc.)
- do not stay long while sitting or standing
- drink water often (2-3 liters per day)
- bend your feet regularly
- try to keep your legs in good condition whenever possible (when watching TV, reading books, etc.)
- sleep with slightly raised legs (5-8cm.)
Exercises for the prevention of varicose veins:
"Scissors": in a horizontal position, extend your arms along the torso, breathing - even. Then lift the straight legs at an angle of 20-30 ° and cross in turn. Choose the rhythm and speed of the exercise yourself
Exercise for the feet. In this case, you just need to train your feet, twist them counterclockwise or clockwise, and make other small physical movements. The most important benefit of this exercise is that it can be performed anywhere, whether at home or at work.
"semi-press", this type of exercise is similar to a regular press, the implementation of which everyone knows. You need to lie on the floor, bend your knees. When lifting the body, be sure to take a deep breath, this will allow you to regulate breathing. The position of the hands should be along the body, thereby helping the muscles to adapt. Return to the starting position with an exhale. You can repeat the exercises from four to eight times.
