Exercise and Hemophilia

Posted on May 07, 2018

"Feeling good today. Been having a problem trying to work out; every time I do it, I end up getting a bleed in my right bicep. But I'm going to switch the plan up and see if I can try again!" - A member of MyHemophiliaTeam

On MyHemophiliaTeam, the social network and online support group for those living with hemophilia and other bleeding disorders, members talk about a range of personal experiences and struggles. Exercise is one of the top 10 topics most discussed.

Here are some conversations about exercise:

My 18-year-old who is a severe hemophiliac goes to the boxing gym. I'm terrified.

Am I doing too much physical therapy?

Started a new exercise program on Monday and am paying the price with incredibly sore and slightly swollen joints.

My 5-year-old son has a minor joint bleed in his ankle, it started Friday. We let him play basketball for 20 mins today and it faired back up. I know bad move on our part, we are somewhat new to joint bleeds. Does anyone have any advice on what to do?

Can you relate?

Do you pretreat before you exercise? Maybe you need to until you build up the muscle more. Or do less reps or lighter weights. I work out in a therapy pool. Try to find a Hinges and Twinges class.
