Hi Philip,

Thank you for your answer. My question was directed at banded distractions. From my perspective, your answer doesn’t focus on my question, but generally things to think about when distracting and I completely agree on the things you say. 
Let me be more clear. When performing the hip distraction the femoral veins swells up due to the stop of the bloodflow experienced because of the pressure of the band. Additionally, I have varicose veins and I am wondering how this pressure sustained during these exercises affects the veins in general?!
