Nice Legs

Leg care should be an important part of your overall health regime. Our legs help us get to work; play with our children, and exercise. Without them life is a lot more difficult. It's not hard to practice healthy leg care. Follow these steps and you'll have healthy and happy legs.

* Exercise regularly. Engaging in a regular exercise program is one of the best things you can do to ensure healthy legs. Exercise gets the blood pumping and flowing properly which is very important for circulation. Poor circulation can lead to varicose veins and other more serious problems.

*Move around more often. Sitting in the same position for long periods of time can lead to blood clots. Practicing healthy leg care by moving around when working at your desk or taking long trips is the easiest way to avoid blood clots in the legs.

* Eat a healthy diet. Plaque can build up in arteries and veins when you eat too much fat and cholesterol. Eating a healthy diet is a very important step in healthy leg care. Getting plaque buildup in an artery or vein in the leg is another cause of blood clots. Eating right and exercising will ward off plaque buildup and keep your legs healthy.

* Wear compression socks or support hose if you work on your legs for long periods of time. Healthy leg care is harder to achieve when you are on your feet all day long, but it's not impossible. Compression socks and support hose help with circulation and reduce the risk of blood clots. Use them as directed by your doctor to keep your legs healthy.

* Practice healthy leg care after surgery. During surgery small blood clots can form. If you don't move around after the operation you run the risk of the blood clots traveling and getting stuck in your legs, causing a blood clot. These can be life threatening. It's important to move around as much as possible after surgery. If you can't move on you own, there are devices the hospital can employ to keep the blood flowing correctly. Always ask about your options and do what's best for your health.

* Stop smoking. Smoking can lead to hardening of the arteries, which in turn can lead to blood clots. You will also be able to exercise more after you stop smoking because breathing is easier. Stopping smoking is part of healthy leg and overall body care.

Taking care of your legs should be a top priority. An overall healthy life style that includes exercise and proper eating habits is the best way to ensure healthy legs. Keep your legs healthy and there's no telling where they'll take you.
