How to prevent varicose veins?
Movement is one of the best methods of preventing varicose veins. The main exercises for varicose veins are those that activate the so-called muscle pump (that is, calf muscles whose pressure on the veins improves blood circulation). Belong to them:
- cycling and inline skating
- jogging, walking on hilly terrain
- exercises on the stepper
Exercises for varicose veins
As often as possible (on weekends, even several times a day), exercise your legs at home or at work. The simplest exercise is the so-called bicycle (lying on your back, bend your legs, and make movements similar to pedaling) or climbing on your toes (at least for a minute). When sitting at your desk, move your feet frequently. Move them up and down first, then in circular motions.
