While some restrictions are starting to ease up, there’s still a lot of uncertainty regarding COVID-19 and the re-opening of the country. Certain states are moving into new phases, but one thing’s for sure: gyms aren’t ready to open. This has caused a lot of people around the country, and even the world, to become more sedentary than usual. With an increase in sedentary lifestyles, more and more people are suffering from poor circulation. Unfortunately, what most people don’t realize is that a lifestyle with little to no activity and increasingly poor circulation can lead to varicose veins, blood clots, deep vein thrombosis, and even death. To help make sure that you’re staying as healthy as possible, consider adding a few simple exercises to your daily routine. Getting up for just 10 minutes every hour or so will drastically improve your circulation and lower your risks of developing blood clots. By adding in one or more of the following exercises, you’ll improve your circulation even more.
Venous ulcerations, also known as venous skin ulcers, are a type of sore that appears on your lower extremities—most often the legs. These ulcers usually occur due to weakened blood circulation, like in those who have varicose veins or risk factors for varicose veins. The problem with venous ulcerations is that they take a long time to heal—sometimes lasting years. With such a long healing process, you’re more at risk for developing more serious complications. To avoid this, it’s important to get venous ulcerations treated and cured.
