Vein Self-Care And Home Remedies

Spider and varicose veins can often be symptoms of a larger underlying problem with vein diseases. Whether you have circulation problems, discomfort and/or pain, the board-certified vein doctors at Comprehensive Vein Care can offer expert medical assistance.

Managing pain and discomfort associated with vein diseases can be challenging, and there are some vein treatments Comprehensive Vein Care can provide to help alleviate some of these symptoms.

In addition to professional attention, there are some vein self-care and home remedies you can do yourself to feel more comfortable.

Many of these self-care measures can help slow down or prevent the further development of vein diseases.

Compression Stockings

Wearing a pair of compression stockings each day can help people alleviate symptoms associated with leg discomfort before implementing other options.

Compression stockings work by gently squeezing your lower legs, ankles and feet to help make the movement of blood in the veins and leg muscles more efficient, improving circulation.

Movement And Exercise

Adding just 15 minutes of continuous movement and exercise into your daily routine can help encourage blood circulation. If you consult with your doctor, they can recommend a physical activity appropriate for you and your lifestyle.

Diet And Weight Considerations

If you’re overweight, losing weight can help take pressure off your spider and varicose veins, ultimately improving circulation and helping to reduce pain and discomfort. Make sure you’re eating a well-balanced diet with sufficient vitamin intake. Your doctor may also recommend that you follow a low-salt diet to prevent excess swelling caused by water retention.

Wear Loose Clothing

Tight-fitting clothing around your waist, groin or legs can make pain and discomfort from vein diseases worse. As much as possible, avoid wearing high-heeled shoes and stick to wearing nonrestrictive clothing.

Elevate Your Legs

Raising your legs each day can help improve blood circulation. For the most effective results, make sure to raise your legs above the level of your heart. This can be done by stretching out on a couch and putting three or four pillows under your legs.

Avoid Long Periods Of Inactivity

Sitting or standing for long periods of time can make pain associated with vein disease worse. Ensure you move your body as often as possible to help improve blood flow and circulation.

Professional Vein Disease Treatment

While these home remedies can help you feel more comfortable in your day-to-day life, more long-term, professional treatment for spider and varicose veins can help address more severe vein diseases. These treatment options include sclerotherapy, Radiofrequency Ablation (RFA) and VenaSeal. When you consult with one of our board-certified physicians, they can help you figure out which treatment option makes the most sense for you.
