Fly Safer

Flying_DVT_Prevention_vein_Blog_May09.jpg If you haven't heard already airlines are cutting back: charging people for spacious exit row seats and removing first class cabins. Airlines all over the world are feeling the cost-reduction necessity, but this may be causing frequent flier health risks. For jet-setters who can't afford the luxuries of business and first class, or simply can't pay for the extra leg room, crammed cattle-class seems to be the go. Which has the ability to result in detrimental side effects to your vein health. Flying safe is key to preventing Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and other vein health issues like varicose veins. This means wearing compression stockings, walking continuously throughout the cabins and perhaps even avoiding the continuous long-haul flights if possible. Much easier said that done especially for people traveling for business. So as airlines cut back our luxuries, don't fall victim to venous disease, instead do your best to fly safer and avoid the pain of gnarled varicose veins and DVT.
