Yoga is a great, natural option to alleviate pain caused by varicose veins. Doctors recommend elevating the legs to help drain blood from the bulging veins, helping the blood flow and reducing pressure. Many yoga poses involve leg elevation or even complete body inversion and can offer relief from varicose vein symptoms, on top of all the other benefits of this mindful exercise.
