It is said that sitting for a long time is harmful to health. You must get up and move around every once in a while to promote blood circulation and prevent thrombosis. So, does standing often have any effect on physical health? In fact, standing for a long time can also cause disease - varicose veins of the lower extremities.
The function of the middle veins in the human body is mainly responsible for transporting the body's blood back to the heart. The veins in the legs are far away from the heart. In order to allow the blood to flow back to the heart smoothly, the compression of the muscles of the lower limbs and the anti-backflow valve in the veins play an important role. They can guide the blood from the bottom to the top. Heart; if venous valve insufficiency occurs, the venous wall is weak, or the intra-abdominal pressure increases, it will cause blood to accumulate in the lower extremities, increase the venous pressure of the lower extremities, make the blood vessels lose elasticity, and further lead to venous valve insufficiency or even destruction, so malignant Circulation can cause varicose veins in the lower extremities to become more serious.
When standing for a long time, due to the influence of gravity, blood pools, and the veins of the lower extremities are in a state of high pressure for a long time, and the possibility of suffering from varicose veins of the lower extremities also increases. Pregnant women have increased intra-abdominal pressure, which is easy to compress the iliac veins, etc., resulting in obstruction of venous return of the lower extremities, and it is also easy to cause varicose veins of the lower extremities.
After a diagnosis of varicose veins in the lower extremity, intensive exercise, wearing elastic stockings, and doing more leg lifts are the simplest and cheapest treatments; when these methods do not work, further treatment is required.
