Why people in teaching profession are more prone to develop varicose veins?

Teaching requires you to be on your feet for long periods of time, and it can also include long periods of sitting while you prepare for your next class or while correcting student work. Both of these factors can have long-term effects on your legs that lead to vein damage and varicose veins.

If you're a teacher, protecting your legs from developing variocse veins should be apriority. Fortunately, there are many things you can do to help  prevent varicose veins:

Give your legs a break every half hour by sitting for a few minutes.
Maintain a healthy weight to avoid unnecessary stress on your legs.
Exercise and/or walking regularly. This improves blood circualation in the legs.
Elevate your feet during breaks each day to decrease venous pressure at the ankle.
Avoid high heels and uncomfortable shoes which may prevent blood from going back efficiently.
Wear graduated compression stockings throughout the day, from morning till you go to sleep in the night.
