3 Exercises to Get Your Body Spring Break Ready While Getting Rid of Vein Pain
- Posted on: Mar 15 2019
If you’re like most people, you’re probably ditching the Houston sun for some warmer sun someplace a little bit more exotic this spring break. If you are feeling a little bit self-conscious about your physique and your varicose veins, we have created a list of some exercises that may help you lose excess weight and some of the symptoms of your veins at the same time.
As long as you have healthy joints, running is a great workout that can speed up your heart rate, increase your blood circulation, and help you lose some extra pounds. Not only will this kind of cardio hopefully help you lose some extra weight, but it will also hopefully help you alleviate some of the pain, throbbing, swelling, and overall discomfort caused by your varicose veins.
If running isn’t your thing but you still want a cardio workout, then consider biking. Biking is especially great for people who suffer from joint pain in their knees, hips, or ankles. By taking the pressure off of your joints, you can get similar cardio benefits as with running but without quite as much pain.
If you feel like you aren’t either a runner or a biker, but you still want to get your heart rate up and your blood circulating, then you may want to do something that’s a little lighter like walking. Walking is a great way to get outside, get moving, and hopefully lose some lb’s in the process. Just make sure that you try to push yourself a little bit so that you can get more of a workout. For instance, you can speed walk or walk in a park that has a lot of hills; that way you really get a workout.
Exercise is one of the lifestyle changes that we encourage our varicose vein patients to try to help relieve symptoms and get rid of extra weight. Plus, exercise will also help you look better in your bikini during spring break. To learn a little bit more, contact us at our Houston office today and call us at 713.349.8346 (VEIN).
