A 70-year-old man in Wuhan has suffered from retinal detachment after hitting trees with his body, a popular way of fitness among Chinese elderly that is believed to ease backache.
 

Zhang was told by the doctor to stop his wrong "tree bumping exercise" after diagnosed with retinal detachment.
 

"Soon after the exercise, I began to feel uncomfortable with my eyes," Zhang noted, adding that the color of things that he saw "changed."
 

The doctor said Zhang's vision loss had a "direct relation" with the tree bumping. "The retina of the elderly is rather fragile to bear too much physical impact," the doctor said.
 

Zhang's case soon got widespread on China's social media platforms. "Every morning in our nearby park, I see elderly people station themselves by trees hitting with their head, back and legs," said one netizen.
 

70岁老人撞树健身,导致视网膜脱落

如今提倡全民健身,很多老年人也加入到了健身的行列,但有的老年人健身方式却挺“狂野”,比如我经常看到一些老人挺直背使劲撞树;还有的把头吊着不断晃动身体。最近,武汉的一名老人就因为撞树晨练,导致自己的视网膜脱落,来看看怎么回事?
 

近日,湖北省武汉市一名70岁老人为了缓解腰腿痛,尝试身体撞树的晨练方式,之后他感觉眼睛里出现了“蚊虫飞舞”,经过医生检查,原来是老人的视网膜发生了脱落。
 

近年来,随着老人健身养生的流行,一些奇奇怪怪的健身方法也大行其道。
 

比如此前曾一度流行的“上吊式”健身,一些老人认为这样可以治疗颈椎病,但实际上这样的健身方式可能带来非常严重的后果。
 

在这里,医生也提醒广大老年人,日常锻炼一定要选择合适的运动方式,运动量不要太大,另外,不要轻易相信一些所谓的民间健身“偏方”,避免身体受到伤害。
