Top 8 Ways to Manage Your Varicose Veins
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, you might consider supporting your legs with compression stockings.
You can wear tight-fitting socks to maintain constant pressure on your legs, preventing pooling and pressure. Compression socks may help you avoid blood clots and worsening damaged valves.
After a long day of standing, you can elevate your legs to improve your circulation while relieving 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. When you manage your weight and eat healthy, you can reduce the pain, heaviness, and discomfort.
As you manage the effects of varicose veins, avoid wearing high heels. Instead, wear shoes with arch support. You can try the comfortable shoes most frequently worn by nurses or other professionals on their feet all day.
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.
