The Prevention Of Varicose And Spider Veins

Apr 29, 2008
Of all the aesthetically challenging health conditions, venous health disorders plague many people and the western lifestyle has been linked to a higher chance of developing venous health issues in one's life. There are ways to prevent this occurrence however and they generally involved taking better care of the body overall.

To help prevent varicose and spider veins on various parts of the body, it is always a good idea to exercise regularly. Regular exercise in general is excellent for the body's overall ability to heal and keeps the blood flowing smoothly. It also helps keep the heart and veins healthy, promoting the flow of blood which prevents pooling blood and thus unsightly veins. Varicose and spider veins are not necessarily just veins that can be seen beneath the skin but usually are cluster together, abnormally large, protruding from the skin in abnormal ways, and can contribute to pain, swelling, itching, leg restlessness, and other uncomfortable symptoms.

The benefits of exercise on the body as well as overall venous health cannot be stressed enough. To keep veins healthy, it is a good idea to stretch and walk during long trips of any kind, whether it be via car, plane, train, or any other form of transportation. This gives the body a chance to get the blood flowing again and to keep the veins from having blood pool in them. It is a good habit to get into. Furthermore, when sitting or standing for prolonged periods of time, it is also a good idea to stretch the legs, move them stretch the calves and move the ankles around. This also helps get blood moving and prevents pooling in the legs.

When we exercise our bodies and commit to a routine, our body will thank us in so many ways. Firstly, we will be granted more control over our health and appearance and varicose and spider veins are far less likely to become a challenge. Though hereditary factors can play a role in venous health, we can also help our body to stay health and strong by keeping fit and active. Our veins require care also, and they are a very often overlooked part of the body which sustains our ability to move and use our muscles.

For those who develop symptomatic varicose and spider veins, such as during pregnancy, they often subside after pregnancy. The increase in weight and pressure can lead to stress on the veins in the legs but this is alleviated after childbirth. These symptoms, if not alleviated after childbirth, can be treated by a vein care specialist in the appropriate manner. Also, by staying within an ideal weight range, the likelihood of developing veins is reduced.

For many, varicose and spider veins are considered a fact of life, inevitable with aging. This is not the way that modern medical technology views venous health and with so many breakthroughs in venous health over time, caring for and curing the body is no longer a serious challenge. Asking plenty of questions is a great idea, to keep you fully informed of your health options.
