Relieving the Pain of Varicose Veins

If your job involves standing or sitting for a longtime and your legs start to ache, if you developed staining at the ankle or experienced bleeding or clots in the veins, if you have already developed an ulcer that will not heal, then it is time to ask for help with your varicose veins.

woman stretchingAt Advanced Vascular, we know that your varicose veins don’t have to stop you from participating in your daily activities. For varicose veins pain relief, there are several tips you can follow:

Stretching and Exercising

Moving your calf muscles and feet can alleviate some discomfort. Flex the muscles in your foot and change your position to sitting, standing, walking or lying down every 30 minutes. If your workday mostly involves sitting or standing, get up and take a walk around your office regularly.

Elevating Your Legs

When your legs are elevated above your heart, you may immediately feel varicose veins pain relief as blood from the lower body is circulated back to the heart so that the venous valves become more efficient. It is helpful if you elevate your legs on pillows, a table or up against the wall while you’re lying down.

Wearing the Right Outfit

Varicose veins pain can be triggered by high heels. Opt for a lower heel that will work your calf muscles, which in turn has positive effects on your veins. Furthermore, tight clothing restricts the flow of blood and should be avoided.

Finding the Right Solution for You

Though there may not be any way to prevent varicose veins from occurring, there are measures you can take to relieve pain and slow any new varicose veins from developing. These simple tips can be done at home, with many that you can implement during your workday or on your commute.
