Anti-edema and anti-edema

On the evening of the 6th, Aunt Liu walked downstairs for more than an hour and her feet became swollen.

Aunt Liu has learned a new way of keeping in good health with her neighbors-walking on her heels, she has to walk for an hour after dinner.

I heard that this method of walking can stimulate the meridians and benefit the heart.

Professor Zhao Wenhai, director of the Department of Orthopaedics of the Provincial Hospital of Traditional Chinese Medicine, pointed out that the heel alone cannot withstand the stress caused by walking. Long time can cause local edema or injury.

  Walking can promote blood circulation and is good for cardiopulmonary function.

But walking on the heel is not advisable.

Because when people walk, the stress points are widely distributed on the toes, cheekbones, and heels, which is equivalent to a fan surface. If you walk with the heel alone, it means that a point bears the weight that should be carried by one surface, so thatThe pressure on the heel is multiplied, and the bone structure of the heel should not bear the full weight.

Therefore, walking with the heel almost has the problem of instability in walking. Over time, it will cause local edema and even injury of the heel.
