Everyday Lifestyle Changes Can Affect Venous Health

While there are many cutting-edge venous treatments available today, including new, less invasive procedures, your doctor will probably recommend that you incorporate some lifestyle changes into your daily routine to reduce your chance of needing future treatment.

How Your Clothing Choices Can Affect Venous Health

Some of these changes may be unexpected, for example, reconsidering certain types of clothing. Extremely tight clothing can put pressure on nerves and impede circulation and are not considered to be a good idea for people with known venous disease. Tight waistbands may also prove problematic for their effect on circulation, so avoid constricting garments such as shapers and control top pantyhose.

Likewise, shoes should be flat, fit correctly, and be comfortable. High heels may look aesthetically pleasing, but along with causing unsightly foot problems like bunions, they are not as effective in allowing your calves to go through their full range of motion.

How Your Posture Can Affect Venous Health

There are simple changes that can be made to your posture that can positively affect venous health. Try to avoid crossing your legs. This may be challenging at first but it impedes circulation and can lead to the creation of spider veins by increasing pressure inside the veins.

Avoid sitting or standing in one position too long. Remaining in one posture for extended periods of time puts unnecessary stress and pressure on your legs and feet. Try to move more throughout the day.
