Exercises for Healthy Circulation to Prevent Varicose Veins

Healthy circulation is vital to your overall health, as it transports oxygen and essential nutrients to the brain, skin, and organs in the body. Poor circulation can lead to complications like varicose veins and spider veins, kidney disease, and even stroke. Fortunately, exercise can significantly boost your blood flow to improve circulation to prevent varicose veins and spider veins.

Signs of Poor Circulation

  • Bruising
  • Slight Skin Discoloration in the Extremities

Exercises to Boost Circulation

Poor Blood Flow and Varicose Veins

When the valves in the veins become damaged, the blood does not circulate properly. Over time, this results in backflow and pooling of the blood, which is often displayed as varicose veins. At Family Medicine and Vein Clinic, we diagnose your varicose veins and offer a wide variety of vein treatments tailored just for you.
