Nerve damage from tight clothing

Post by fishandchips » Tue Jun 23, 2015 2:46 pm

Bending a lot or doing some moving? Don't wear tight skinny pants unlike you want nerve damage and a trip to the ho$pital. Yes, it could cost you time and money.
Doctors were surprised to find that squatting in the tight jeans had lead to compartment syndrome, a dangerous condition where an injury leads to swelling of the muscle or nerves that is constrained by a layer of tissue called the fascia. As the swelling continues the fascia is unable to expand and eventually the muscle and nerves can be injured as blood flow is cut off.

There's a reason you wear comfortable clothing-to be able to move around with ease and get the task done!
Frozen? Not I. Love hot drinks and ice rinks.
