I Want to Wear Shorts, BUT I’m too Embarrassed Because of Varicose Veins.

Get Beautiful Legs This Summer by Doing This!

Walking increases circulation and helps eliminate and protect from varicose veins.  Make sure to follow these tips for best results!

Start Off Slow and Increase as Tolerated

If you’re just beginning a walking workout start with a 15 minute walk and increase by 5 minutes every week.  As the walk becomes easier, add light hand weights and you’ll strengthen muscles that support your joints and increase circulation to your legs which helps to reduce varicose veins.

Wear Good Fitting Shoes

Wear good fitting shoes with solid support that allow you to walk from heel to toe.  Stiff shoes or old worn out shoes can cause you to have improper gait and that can cause head to toe joint pain.  As a general rule, replace your shoes every 6 months.

Integrate Breathing Exercises into Your Walk

Your body loves oxygen. The more oxygen you take in the healthier you get. Your heart is a muscle and pumps nourishing blood to your legs. When you put your heart to work it gets larger and stronger just like a bicep in your arm when lifting weights. Arthritis Walking Workout specially designed moves makes your heart pump more oxygen enriched blood to your legs even when you are at rest.

Elevate Your Legs

When you’re resting make sure to elevate your legs above your heart by placing a pillow under them.

Compression Stockings

Wear compression stockings to help reduce edema (swelling).
