As the weather gets warmer, more women begin wearing skirts and shorts.

The best method of preventing and fighting varicose veins

In some cases, varicose veins and “spider” in the lower limbs can create certain problems. Dr. Greg Martin, specialist from New York, reveals the best method of preventing and fighting varicose veins.

Dilated veins (varicose veins) of the lower limbs and the “spider” affect around 30-50% of adults, including 70-80% women. Here’s what Dr. Greg Martin, founder of the society Say Goodbye to Varicose and Spider Veins Now, says about varicose veins and “spider” veins:

The “foot over foot” position does not lead to the formation of varicose veins.

Neither the fact that you wear high heels. Venous flow is slowed down by the long standing position and/or seating. Other causes are “obesity, smoking, physical inactivity, and hormonal contraceptives remedies”, Dr. Navarro, vascular surgeon, says.

Dilated veins are not just a cosmetic problem.

“Varicose veins can cause fatigue, and leg swelling, general discomfort, venous circulatory failure. If you feel pain at the end of the day or after you exercise you should consult a doctor”, researchers suggest.

Dilated varicose veins and spider veins are not the same thing.

“Spider” veins are:
-tiny blood vessels, usually innocuous;
-they can be a sign of poor circulation and formation of varicose veins.

Varicose veins are:
- dilated veins who cumulate blood;
- denote thickening, irregularity, and prominence on the skin.

The practice of physical exercises is the best way to prevent and stop varicose veins.
“The more active and healthier you are, the better”, Dr. Rosenberg stresses, suggesting the activities that stimulate circulation in the lower limbs: swimming, climbing stairs, or walking.

The development and strengthening of muscles located in the back side of your legs prevents the occurrence of varicose veins.

“Exercise to tone your muscles, work out, stand on your fingertips, then lower down”, Dr. Martin suggests in his book.
