Thrombosis occurs where blood flow is restricted in a vein or artery. This can happen in the deep veins of the legs and lower body, which tend to rely on contracting muscles to assist blood flow.
Deep Vein Thrombosis tends to occur when the person is inactive for long periods of time. One example of this, which most of us are aware of, is long haul flights to holiday destinations. Prevention of this can be acheived by moving about and drinking non-alcoholic drinks.
Some symptoms of Deep Vein Thrombosis include:
- Swelling in the leg
- Visibly engorged veins
