Practical advises for the legs care
in the venous disease evolution.
Avoid tight clothes (adherent jeans, garters etc..)
If you are travelling by train or airplane, get up often and walk for at least 20 steps. If you are forced to stay sit (bus, underground etc..) lift up your feet toes and heel (at least 20 times).
Sleep with your legs lift up (15-20 cm), it is sufficient placing a pillow under your feet.
If you are bedridden, move often your legs: the best exercise is cycling 20 times with lift up legs, as you are biking (you activate the muscle pump)
