Are physiotherapeutic measures (e.g. physical exercises) sufficient as thrombosis prophylaxis?
Although physiotherapeutic treatment for thrombosis prophylaxis is highly efficient, the effects do not last. This means that the prophylactic effect only lasts as long as the treatment is being given.
This is why additional long-term thrombosis prophylaxis with medical thrombosis prophylaxis stockings and heparin is necessary.
