Choose Loose Fitting Clothing
Tight jeans and confining clothing may be stylish, but it can inhibit blood flow in ways that are dangerous to those who are at a higher risk of developing blood clots. Loose fitting clothing, on the other hand, allows free movement of fluids in the body. If one's clothing is tight enough, it can compress the veins, which have fragile and pliable walls. Compressed veins give blood a place to pool inside the body, forming a clot. Loose fitting clothing is especially important for those who are immobilized for a long time, as even small restrictions will have ample opportunity to create a significant change in blood flow. Choose loose and light clothes that will allow blood flow freely through the body.
