Can I exercise and play sports if I have a bleeding disorder?

Exercise and fitness should be part of your everyday routine, regardless of your bleeding disorder. Exercising helps to keep your bones healthy and strong. It strengthens your muscles, and strong muscles help to support your joints and make injury less likely.

However, there are some precautions you have to take especially if you have a severe bleeding disorder. Contact your haemophilia centre, as they can help you by advising you of what protection, if any, is needed for your chosen fitness plan.
