How Can Varicose Veins Be Prevented?

Formation of varicose vein is difficult or impossible to prevent. But you can prevent varicose vein getting worse. Person can take more precautions to delay forming of other branches of veins. 

  • Avoid long and continuous standing or sitting, better to take break, crossing your legs for a long time is also not good. Elevate the legs during sitting and while sleeping. The leg raise during sleeping should be about 15-25 degree means legs should be above the heart. 
  • To improve muscular tone patients require light physical activities which helps blood flow towards the heart from varicose vein.
  • Those who are overweight or suffering from obesity, lose weight. This will improve venous blood flow through varicose veins. 
  • Tight clothes and low jeans around your waist are not really good because this prevents the venous return towards the heart. Tight clothes can cause varicose veins more worse.
  • Avoid wearing high heels for long periods. Lower heeled shoes can help tone your calf muscles. Toned muscles help blood move through the veins.
  • Wear compression stockings if your doctor advises you to. These stockings create gentle pressure up the leg. This pressure keeps blood from pooling in the veins and decreases swelling in the legs.
