unfortunately I belong to the 15% people that are genetically gifted with varicose veins.
Some months ago I bought a foam roller for tissue work and used it frequently since then. Fine tool!
On monday I had to go to the doc because a varix on the inside of my right leg is inflammated.
Now I inject anti thrombosis med and wear a surgical hose. Very sexy!
I'm thinking about the reason of the inflammation. Maybe its a coincidence, maybe it is because of the massages I receive since two weeks because of an adductor tear from November 2008.
Is it possible that the use of a foam roller aggravates a varix as much that it may inflame? Any experiences?
Thanks in advance for help.
