Sports & Hemophilia

Hemophiliacs today can enjoy an active, healthy lifestyle. However, there are selective sports that are still considered too dangerous. For each sport, there are risks that must be taken into consideration. Always check with your primary care physician to ensure which appropriate physical activities are suitable for your condition.
