As a business owner, the VSS team identifies with your desire to have engaged and productive employees. Today, vein disease affects over 80 million Americans, and found to be related to long periods of standing or sitting at work.

Our VSS Employee Wellness Plan is designed with common-sense preventive measures and education to keep your team on their feet and improved long-term morale at their place of employment.

There are three parts of the venous system that work together to efficiently pump blood back up your leg veins to your heart: the ‘pipes’ (veins), the ‘pump’ (calf muscles), and one-way check valves. Problems with one or more of these parts cause vein disease. Varicose veins have also been associated with serious health risks such as chronic heart conditions, deep vein thrombosis (blood clots), and pulmonary embolism.
You may THINK your feet or legs are supposed to hurt after working a 12-hour shift, but that is not necessarily true. With a healthy vein system, one-way check valves keep the vein blood flowing back toward the heart. If these valves fail, the venous blood can reflux or flow backward and pool in the legs when exposed to gravity from long periods of standing or sitting. These veins dilate and become varicose and symptomatic. This can affect worker productivity and long-term morale at their place of employment, as well as reducing their overall quality of life. But it doesn’t have to be that way!

It’s just 3 easy steps…
Prolonged standing and upright posture places stress on vein circulation of the lower leg and reduce the effectiveness of the venous–muscle pump mechanisms. Medical grade graduated compression socks apply pressure to your legs, encouraging venous return, limits leg swelling and helps prevent varicose veins.
Studies have shown that wearing compression socks can make a difference in your level of fatigue from standing or sitting all day. With the growing awareness of compression socks and their health benefits, modern styles and colors have emerged that make the garment as stylish as any socks you would find in a high-end department store.
While everyone will benefit from conservative therapy, symptomatic employees should still have a proper diagnostic vein screening and evaluation to determine if there is underlying vein disease.
Training and education are important in avoiding complications from prolonged standing or sitting in the work environment. Getting a ‘leg up’ by creating a healthy workforce is a great place to start and Vein Specialists of the South (VSS) is here to help with the process.
