Pressure on Leg Veins is Relieved

You have symptoms of poor circulation if you have varicose veins or have begun experiencing pain in your lower legs. The way you sleep can help. By elevating the legs, blood in the veins is better able to flow to the heart. The type of pressure that causes varicose veins is relieved. You can help to prevent the development of varicose veins in a variety of ways, including the following:

  • Elevating your legs while sleeping and, when possible, during the daytime
  • Eating a low-salt, high-fiber diet
  • Avoiding excess weight gain
  • Regularly changing your standing or sitting position throughout the day

Reduce the Appearance of Varicose Veins

In spite of efforts that may be made to prevent them, the appearance of varicose veins on the legs is common. The unsightly veins are caused by faulty valves that cause blood in the veins to flow in the wrong direction. The veins bulge and stretch in this condition that approximately 1 in 4 adults in the U.S. experience.

Although you won’t usually get rid of varicose veins by sleeping with your legs elevated, you can improve circulation and help to avoid the development of more of the bulging veins. Your lower body is relieved of stress as you sleep with your legs propped up. As a result, the veins experience reduced pressure and swelling in varicose veins is diminished.

Help to Prevent Deep Vein Thrombosis

A condition in which a blood clot develops deep within a vein of the body is known as deep vein thrombosis (DVT). The most common places where DVTs develop are the thighs, legs, and pelvis. Deep vein thrombosis is a potentially life-threatening condition because the blood clot could travel to an artery in the lung and cause a deadly pulmonary embolism. When prescribing proper care for a deep vein thrombosis, doctors invariably advise patients to elevate their legs during the night for pain relief, improved circulation, and reduced swelling.

Relieve Symptoms of Sciatica

The sciatic nerve is the longest nerve in the body. When the sciatic nerve becomes inflamed, it causes pain and discomfort along the spinal cord, through the buttocks, and in the legs. The legs and feet can become numb as the sciatic nerve is compressed or inflamed. Elevating your legs while sleeping can help to minimize the pressure placed on the sciatic nerve, providing relief. 

Sleep Better at Night

If you suffer from insomnia on some level, part of the problem may be the pain you feel in your swollen legs or aching back. When you prop your legs up and have your spine, neck, and head aligned, you could experience much better sleep. With relief from tension, you are more comfortable and likely to sleep more soundly without interruption. Waking up feeling rested from a good night’s sleep is the best way to start your day.
