Don’t make vein pain worse by sitting incorrectly when you get home. If you find yourself laying on a couch or bed with your legs straight out you are likely adding more pressure when you think you are resting.
Leg elevation is key. Especially if you already are experiencing vein health issues such as leg swelling, tired legs, and feet, throbbing, pain, redness, skin changes or visible veins.
Rather than laying flat, arrange some pillows in a comfortable formation to get your legs elevated above your heart 6 to 12 inches. It should bring some relief almost immediately as it takes the pressure off of your leg veins and helps to encourage the blood to flow out of the veins reversing the pressure.
Other suggestions for boosting leg health:
While elevating your legs cannot prevent varicose veins it is a great way to help reduce swelling and alleviate pain.
