Top 8 Ways to Manage Your Varicose Veins

If varicose veins are a regular part of your life, you must find ways to manage them.

At Vanishing Veins Northwest, we help you understand the effects of varicose veins. Here are the top 8 ways to manage your varicose veins.

Avoid Prolonged Sitting or Standing

If your job requires you to sit or stand for long periods, consider ways to mitigate the effects. Whether you work in retail, as a teacher, or as a nurse, make sure you’re able to break take a walk or rest during your workday.

Compression Stocking

You can wear medical grade thigh high compression stockings to maintain constant pressure on your legs, preventing pooling and pressure. Compression socks may help you avoid blood clots and worsening damaged valves.

Elevate Feet

After a long day of standing, you can elevate your legs to improve your circulation while reading swelling and pain. You can combine elevation with compression stockings to further support improved blood flow.


If you walk or swim, you’re improving your blood flow while helping to reduce and prevent swelling and pain from varicose veins.

Losing Weight and Healthy Eating

If you reduce your sodium and better manage your weight, you can prevent worsening issues with blood pooling, swelling, and pressure in your legs which also helps reduce the pain, heaviness, and discomfort.

Proper Shoes

As you manage the effects of varicose veins, you may want to avoid wearing high heels. Instead, wear shoes with arch support. You can try the comfortable shoes most frequently worn by nurses or other professionals who stand on their feet all day.

Stop Smoking

When you stop smoking, you’re helping to reverse the effects of constricted blood vessels, damaged blood vessels, and poor circulation. You can improve your overall health and wellness.
