Varicose veins & spider veins are often caused by poor circulation in your legs and feet. In this video, I'll show several treatments that can help prevent them. 

Ankle pumps and seated heel/toe raises do a great job of increasing the circulation to your legs and increase oxygen to your blood so they can help prevent varicose and spider veins. They are also easy to do almost anywhere.

Another great treatment is Compression stockings, hose, or socks. The folks at JOMI Compression have several different sizes and colors. Their thigh high compression hose are a great option to help prevent varicose and spider veins, as well as prevent DVTs and help with muscle fatigue.

Now for standing exercises and stretches. The runner’s stretch stretches the calf muscles and Achilles tendon. Heel raises and single leg raises not only do a great job to increase circulation, but they also do a great job of strengthening the legs.

Finally, a squat or modified squat is a great exercise as well.
