How Can Your Job Put You at Risk of Varicose Veins

Varicose veins affect 22 million American women and 11 million men aged 40-80. You’re probably familiar with the enlarged and even twisted-rope look of varicose veins, but do you know that your job could put you at higher risk?

At Vanishing Veins Northwest, we offer varicose vein evaluations, diagnostics, and recommendations for treatment. We also offer tips and advice to help you cope with your varicose veins.

What Causes Varicose Veins in Your Legs?

Factors like genetics, age, hormones (whether you’re pregnant), weight, and gender are all causes that contribute to varicose veins.

Which Jobs Are Risky for Varicose Veins?

Professions requiring long periods of standing or sitting may put you at a higher risk of developing varicose veins. Working as a nurse, teacher, waiter/waitress, truck driver, or in IT tends to be a job where women and men experience worsening side effects.

How Could Your Job Put You at Risk for Varicose Veins?

If you sit or stand extensively, consider adjustments to your schedule to better support your vein health and overall wellness. You can talk to your supervisor about getting up and moving around, taking a walk, and minimizing those long hours of intensive sitting or standing.
