5 Ways to Help Prevent Varicose Veins

One of the most frequent questions we are asked is, “What is the cause of varicose veins?” The number one cause is genetics. We tend to inherit them from our parents. Other significant causes are pregnancy, jobs with prolonged standing, age, and trauma. Due to genetic influences, there may not always be a way to prevent varicose veins from forming. But, there are a few things we can do that may help.

Ways to Help Prevent Varicose Veins

  1. Avoid prolonged sitting or standing: If your job requires you to sit for extended periods, take a few moments to regularly flex and extend your legs, feet, and ankles. This helps the blood flowing in the leg veins. If you stand for long periods, take advantage of breaks to sit down and elevate your feet.
  2. Exercise regularly: Walking is especially beneficial for your venous system.
  3. Lose weight: Being significantly overweight puts increased stress on the venous system. It makes it more difficult for the blood to flow up the leg veins, back toward the heart.
  4. Elevate your legs: When resting at the end of the day, elevate your legs to take some of the pressure out of the leg veins, decreasing the work against gravity to get the blood back up to the chest.
  5. Wear compression stockings: This is especially important if your job requires that you stand or sit the entire day (nurse, teacher, etc.). Compression stockings are beneficial in helping prevent varicose veins when you don’t have the freedom to move.
