It’s no secret that varicose veins can cause pain in your legs as well as other areas, such as your ankles. If you are dealing with ankle pain stemming from varicose veins, we are here to help. We have put together a few tips to help ease the pain. Take a look:
- Wear compression stockings: Compression stockings can be very beneficial when it comes to dealing with ankle pain from varicose veins. These stockings will work to reduce the amount of pressure on the area as well as help blood circulation.
- Elevate your legs: If you are sitting or lying down for an extended period of time, you can also elevate your legs to help ease the pain. This will help increase the blood flow back to your heart, which will take the pressure of your ankle.
- Reduce your sodium intake: Sodium is a nutrient that increases water retention in your body. Consider reducing your sodium intake to help reduce the swelling of your ankles.
