If you happen to be in a job that requires you to stand for long periods, you may be thinking, is this going to cause varicose veins?

The good news is that you are not alone. There are thousands of jobs from working in a factory, construction, teachers, police officers, hair dressers, nurses and even doctors that are in jobs involving standing. The list goes on.

If you had risk factors such as genetics, having multiple children or also being overweight then these professions involving standing are going to speed up the process. If you do not have the risk, then chances are you may never get varicose veins in the first place.
