3. Exercise More
It isn’t very unusual for people to be lazy in today’s world. Unfortunately, along with a number of other threats, not moving often can lead to DVT too. Being idle for long intervals of time disturbs your blood flow, increasing the likeliness of a clot occurring in the leg.
Simply walking around more often can help your chances of preventing a blood clot. Or another very easy technique is to raise and lower your heels, even while you’re sitting, this little exercise can get the job done. Both of these activities make your calf muscles work, which squeezes the deep veins and pushes the blood upward.
Immobility is such a huge threat to your health that physicians consider long flights a significant factor in developing blood clots, especially if your physical or genetic background makes you prone to DVT already. The ACCP highly recommends getting up at least once every hour and stretch your legs.
