Do you stand for long hours at work?
Are your legs often swollen and uncomfortable?
If you sit or stand in the same position for a long period of time at work or school, you may notice swelling and numbness in your legs. Repetition of these symptoms is not only very uncomfortable in daily life but also adversely affects health. So, why do calves swell?
The calf muscles are responsible for pumping blood back to the heart to keep it from lingering in the lower body. However, if you sit or stand in the same position for a long time, blood flow stagnates and blood circulation becomes difficult, and for this reason, the calf swells.
Also, if you don’t exercise regularly, the muscles in your calves will gradually weaken and blood circulation will be lowered as blood cannot be pumped to the heart.
When the function of the calf is weakened, blood flow is stagnant and varicose veins or blood clots are easy to occur, and symptoms such as swelling or indigestion appear easily so it can lead to complications, so you need to take care of your health.
If the calf is this important. How should I manage it?
It is said that even if you just massage your calves consistently, blood circulation will improve and your immunity will increase about 5 times as the whole body warms up. If the immune system is improved due to calf health, symptoms such as high blood pressure, diabetes, myocardial infarction, knee pain, varicose veins, and insomnia can be prevented.
The sole and calf rolling function, along with the airbag function, stimulates blood vessels in the sole and calf to help blood circulation. With this function, the blood that has been stagnant in the legs for a long time circulates effectively, and the swelling of the legs can be reduced.
