how do you treat venous stasis?

Get the blood moving: Venous stasis is sluggish flow due to venous insufficiency (valve damage) or calf muscle dysfunction due to bedrest, improper gait/footwear or injury. Ambulation with good calf muscle contraction, enhanced by compression stockings and correcting the vein problem (varicose vein disease/insufficiency) also helps. Those at risk for blood clots (heredity, surgery, malignancy) may need blood thinners.
