Florida Vein Specialists Publish a New Article Discussing Varicose Veins and Running

Florida Vein Specialists: Varicose Veins and Running

March 14th, 2015. Boynton Beach, FL. South Palm Cardiovascular Associates is releasing a new article that discusses running and whether it is a good form of exercise for people with varicose veins. According to these Florida vein specialists, although exercise is an important part of living with varicose veins and regaining vein health, the type of exercise performed may depend on a patient’s individual condition.

In their new article, these noted Palm Beach vein treatment experts explain that the high impact and pounding associated with running may not make it the best choice for those with varicose veins, because it may increase internal pressure in veins that have already been damaged by vein disease. “Walking may be a better choice, along with other forms of low-impact exercise such as riding a bike or using an elliptical trainer. Wearing compression stockings while you exercise can help your circulation even more.”

To learn more about exercises that can reduce the uncomfortable side effects of varicose veins, contact some of the best vein doctors in Palm Beach or visit SPCVA’s website at:
