Healthy Lifestyle Changes that Can Help Keep Varicose Veins Away!

About 33 million people between the ages of 40 and 80 are affected by varicose veins, or about one out of four adults in the U.S. Most commonly the symptoms include achiness, heaviness, throbbing, cramping, and swelling of the legs, in addition to dryness and itchiness of the skin near the varicose veins.


Although varicose veins and smaller spider veins may not be preventable, it is possible to stop the ones that already exist from getting worse and to delay the formation of new ones. Lifestyle can play a big role, as certain changes can also help ease symptoms. These six small changes can provide big payoffs.


  1. Exercise is always great for circulation, improving blood flow and easing pressure on the veins. Try leg lifts, calf raises, bicycle legs and side lunges to get the blood pumping.
  2. Control body weight, and attempt to add fiber into the diet while reducing salt intake.
  3. Avoid high heels and wearing tight clothing, which can make varicose veins worse.
  4. Elevate the legs above the heart for 15 minutes, 3-4 times per day.
  5. Change sitting or standing positions regularly and take frequent breaks. Refrain from crossing the legs when sitting.
  6. Wear sunscreen.


When symptoms are painful and lifestyle changes have not provided sufficient relief, varicose vein removal surgery can help. Our expert varicose vein specialists can effectively treat varicose veins using the latest endovenous ablation and sclerotherapy techniques. There’s minimal discomfort, and treatment is virtually painless, and with these modern therapies, most people can resume their daily activities immediately after treatment.
