Summer Circulatory Tips

  • If you have already began seeing spider veins, wear mild compression stockings (15-20mmhg) to prevent more
  • Drink lots of fluids. Staying hydrated promotes good circulation
  • If traveling by plane, stand up and walk up and down the aisle for few minutes. If traveling by car, stretch at rest stops
  • Rise up and down on the tip of your toes while standing to promote circulation in the lower body
  • When sitting, flex and extend your ankle and rotate your ankle.

  • Avoid High Salt Foods: Unhealthy foods packed with salt can cause constipation, which puts pressure on the venous system
  • Stay Active: During a flight, walk around every hour to promote circulation.  If driving long distance, be sure to make stops to stretch out along the way
  • Genetics play the most significant role in the development of spider and varicose veins, and are inherited most often from the mother’s side of the family.
