This is the most common disease of the rectum; 12-15% of the world's population suffers from hemorrhoids. This disease is common among both men and women.

Exercise is one of the main causes of hemorrhoids
Predisposing factors for the development of hemorrhoids are often chronic constipation, prolonged sitting and a sedentary lifestyle, alcohol abuse, spicy spicy foods. But most often, excessive physical effort leads to the development of hemorrhoids and prolapse of hemorrhoids. Often this problem occurs among athletes involved in power sports: weight lifting, various types of wrestling, power sports. Physical activity is especially dangerous for an untrained organism or in cases when, as a result of a long break due to injury or illness, an athlete loses his shape and, starting training, incorrectly calculates the load on the body.
Often, hemorrhoids appear among loader workers, whose duties are directly related to lifting weights, as well as professional builders and many other representatives of blue-collar occupations. Housewives, who have a habit of carrying heavy shopping bags, are no exception.
Pregnant women often suffer from this unpleasant disease, because during this period they also experience increased stress on the intestines, pelvic organs and directly on the rectum, associated with pressure on these organs of the growing uterus. The process of childbirth itself is also associated with increased physical exertion, when all abdominal muscles are strained during attempts, and the pelvic organs and intestines experience colossal overloads associated with the movement of the fetus along the birth canal.

Therapy can be conservative, including minimally invasive and surgical methods of treatment.

It is necessary to refrain from lifting weights, engaging in power sports - this leads to the progression of the disease.It is useful to engage in therapeutic exercises aimed at strengthening the muscles of the abdominal and perineum, moderate physical activity, and an active lifestyle should become the norm.
