Deep Vein Trouble
Recognize and Prevent Deep Vein Thrombosis
Most people have heard of “economy-class syndrome.” People who sit through long airplane flights without moving around can develop blood clots in veins deep within their lower leg or thigh. The condition is called deep vein thrombosis (DVT), and it’s not just airplane flights that can raise your risk. Anyone sitting in a car, at a desk or elsewhere for long periods of time without moving is at higher risk. And other factors you might not expect, like pregnancy, can also increase your risk for DVT.
