Legs Pain Best Remedies
There are some things you can do to prevent or reduce your risk for tired legs:
- Eat a balanced, healthy diet to ensure you’re getting your daily recommended amounts of nutrients. This helps provide you with the energy to go about your daily activities.
- Get plenty of vitamin D from direct sun exposure or your diet.
- Wear proper footwear, especially when you’ll be on your feet for a long time. Choose a shoe that’s supportive, comfortable, and fits correctly. Add padded insoles for additional support.
- Get up and get moving as often as possible. Make an effort to exercise each day for at least 15 minutes. Move around or stretch for at least five minutes for each hour that you’re sedentary.
- Keep your legs uncrossed while you’re sitting.
- Sit up or stand tall, and maintain good posture.
- Drink plenty of water.
- Maintain an optimal weight.
- Wear compression stockings.
- Sleep with pillows underneath your feet.
- Get plenty of rest.
- Limit or avoid alcohol, sugar, and caffeine.
- If you smoke, quit.
Usually, resting and home remedies will be effective in relieving tired legs. However, if your legs still feel tired after at-home treatment or if the tiredness has persisted for more than a few days, make an appointment with your doctor.
Also see your doctor if you’re experiencing any pain, dysfunction, or discomfort. Your doctor can determine if there’s an underlying condition that’s causing your legs to be tired.
