DESCRIPTION

Reducing the risk of blood clotting while traveling

  • When you're looking forward to your vacation and a well-earned break, the last thing you want is to develop venous thrombosis while traveling! Unfortunately, this is a risk because sitting for a long time while traveling by plane, car, train, or bus can put a real strain on your legs.  Travel times of over four hours are a struggle for your veins, and now that long-distance trips are increasingly more frequent these days, it’s important to take preventative measures.
  • Fortunately, compression stockings for travel can help reduce swelling in the legs and improve blood flow.  Traveling usually means sitting in a confined space with little movement, accompanied by water loss due to the low cabin pressure and low humidity in planes.  This is a challenge for your veins, since such conditions can slow down the blood flow and lead to circulation problems, blood clots, and deep vein thrombosis  (DVT).  This can quickly become a serious danger to your health: If left untreated, it can in some cases lead to pulmonary embolism (PE), a heart attack, or a stroke.
     
    If you know you will be traveling for a long time, you should get yourself a pair of compression stockings for travel, such as JOBST Travel Socks .  If you want to arrive at your destination feeling healthy and refreshed, then compression stockings are one of the best ways to help prevent blood clots from traveling.
