Having swollen or enlarged veins can be really painful, discomforting, and a source of distress. While exercise can’t cure varicose veins entirely, it can help ease the pain and improve blood circulation. This can help prevent new varicose veins from forming and reduce the intensity of your current spider veins.
Walking is a low-impact exercise that not only improves circulation but also works on strengthening the calf. Walking is a perfect exercise to reduce spider veins as it is easy to do and can be done anywhere. Aim for 30-45 minutes of walking as frequently as possible.
While swimming, you push your legs up and prevent the blood from collecting in the veins. Depending on your swimming activity, you can either opt for 30 seconds of swimming and 30 seconds of rest or increase the interval duration if you feel comfortable with your fitness level.
Cycling is another low-impact aerobic easy exercise for varicose veins. As you cycle, the blood circulation in the legs is improved and helps to prevent blood from being collected in the veins.
One of the reasons yoga is a great varicose vein exercise is because it helps reduce blood pressure. Blood pressure is a contributing factor to spider veins. Yoga can also focus on movements where the legs are elevated which helps improve blood circulation.
Vertical leg raises
Leg lifts are another workout that can improve blood circulation to help reduce spider veins. As the blood circulates, it is reduced from the veins.
Varicose veins can be reduced by strengthening the calf muscles. By performing calf raises, you strengthen the muscle and reduce spider veins on the legs.
