How to Prevent Blood Clots in Legs from Sitting🪑 and While Flying✈️

There are a few ways to prevent blood clots in legs from developing. One is to move around every hour or so if you're sitting for a long time. You can also take breaks to walk around, and do some light stretching exercises. It's also important to drink plenty of water, since dehydration can contribute to blood clots. If you have a history of developing blood clot, you may want to consider wearing compression stockings.

This is a very common question asked by many travelers who have recently been diagnosed with deep vein thrombosis. A lot of times, people misdiagnose themselves and think they have a blood clot or some kind of serious ailment when in reality it's just a blood clot in the leg or "economy class syndrome".

If you're sitting for longer than 8 hours and you don't move around, chances are that you will develop a blood clot. It is recommended to get up and walk every 2 hours- especially if you have recently been diagnosed with DVT. Here's a little more information about DVT and how to prevent it:

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a condition in which a blood clot forms in one of the deep veins in your body. This often happens in the leg, but can occur elsewhere. A blood clot in a vein can cause pain, swelling, and redness in the area. If the clot breaks free and travels to your lungs, it can cause a serious condition called pulmonary embolism.

There are several things you can do to help prevent DVT, including:

- Moving around every hour or so if you're sitting for a long time

- Taking breaks to walk around

- Doing light stretching exercises

- Drinking plenty of water

- Wearing compression stockings if you have a history of developing blood clots.

If you are traveling and sitting for an extended period of time, it is important to move around and stretch your legs every so often. Drink plenty of water and avoid dehydration. If you are at risk for developing blood clots, consider wearing compression stockings. If you experience any pain, swelling, or redness in your leg, seek medical attention immediately.
