It's important to realize that some professions are at greater risk for vein problems than others.
If you work in a profession that requires you to be on your feet for long periods of time, you're at the greatest risk for developing spider and varicose veins. The problem is amplified if you stand in one place, wear constricting garments, are overweight, wear high heels or are pregnant. The increased pressure of standing on your feet all day can damages the valves that keep blood moving back to your heart.
Jobs requiring prolonged standing aren't the only ones that can damage veins. Desk jobs and those that require long periods of sitting also damage veins' valves and impede blood return to your heart. Crossing your legs increases the risks even more.
"Both of my legs really hurt when I first arrived at the vein clinic."
— Judith J.
