Buy the Varicose Veins WorksheetVaricose veins are caused by weak or damaged walls in the veins and valves. This is a common condition, but they can be painful. These stretches and exercises may help reduce them.

Starting off with some stretches to help reduce varicose veins is a great way to loosen the muscles and help increase circulation to the legs. Calf stretches and hamstring stretches will stretch the lower and upper part of the leg.

Then some exercises will help work the muscles to make natural pumps to keep the blood flow moving to help reduce the varicose veins. SLR, seated heel/toe raises, and seated long arc quads (LAQ) help work the large muscles in the legs.
