❓Can varicose veins be prevented?
🏃♀️Practice sports. When we don’t move, sit, or stand for long periods of time, the muscles in our legs don’t contract, don’t act as a pump, and accumulate in the arteries. Almost any physical activity helps protect against varicose veins.
👟Choose the right shoes. Women who wear high heels every day are more likely to have muscle problems and blood clots in their veins. That is why it is better to choose low-heeled shoes.
🧦Wear tight-fitting socks. The main feature of the compression fabric is the unique weave of the fabric yarns. This fabric puts pressure on the legs and helps the muscles push blood into the veins.
🚫Do not cross your legs. The researchers note that pinching the blood vessels leads to varicose veins. As a result, the pressure in the arteries increases and the valves suffer. If there is a predisposition to the disease, the risk increases. Therefore, do not cross your legs while sitting.
🛏Lie with your feet up. If you stand or sit for a long time during the day, the veins will fill with blood, as if your feet seem to have cracked from the inside. Come home after work, lie on the couch and lift your legs up. 20-30 minutes is enough for this.
