- Objective - to study the influence of abdominal decompression procedure on peripheral blood circulation in sportsmen of cyclic kinds of sport. Material and methods . 60 male sportsmen aged 20-35 years at endurance training in skating and skiing were enrolled in the study. 31 sportsmen composed the main group where the procedure of abdominal decompression was performed after submaximal load according the technique which was developed by the authors. 29 sportsmen composed the control group and in this case decompression was not used. The status of cardiovascular system, lower limbs blood flow and microcirculation channel were estimated. Results . According to rheovasography data the difficulties in venous outflow was observed in knees in 8% and in feet in 35% sportsmen of the main group after physical load. After abdominal decompression rheovasography demonstrated statistically significant diminishment of lower limbs blood flow asymmetry, decrease of large and middle arteries tonus and improvement of venous outflow in 80% sportsmen. Doppler ultrasonography showed statistically significant improvement of microcirculation blood flow after abdominal decompression owing to linear and volume speed increase 2-3 times more. Conclusions . Abdominal decompression allowed to change the status of microcirculation channel effectively and it improved the restoration of lower limbs after physical loads.
