I started wearing support knee hi stockings in my late 30's because I did not want vericose veins like my friends were getting. I am now 58 and still wearing them and my legs are beautiful without any evidence of veins showing. Additionially, you can be on your feet all day without the pain and burning when wearing support hose. I suggest you start today for healthier and more beautiful legs. Sue K. Issaquah, WA

Ways YOU can improve your leg health

There are 6 easy steps you can take to improve your leg health...


STEP 1... Avoid sitting or standing for long periods of time. Exercises, especially walking, contracts and relaxes the calf muscles. The regular contraction and relaxation of these muscles act like a “second heart” as the veins are alternately squeezed and released, causing blood to be pushed towards the heart, thereby improving blood flow.




STEP 2... When it is necessary to sit or stand for a long time, rock your feet up and down. This exercise simulates the beneficial effects of walking and promotes venous circulation.


STEP 3... Elevate your feet. Elevating your feet above the level of the heart several times each day helps venous blood fight the effects of gravity.


STEP 4... Avoid excessive heat, such as sunbathing and very hot baths. Heat dilates veins, reducing effective circulation and increasing the pooling of blood.


STEP 5... Control your weight. Excess weight burdens the entire circulatory system.


STEP 6... Wear graduated compression socks and stockings to improve venous circulation to prevent and treat venous problems.
