Some of the tips would apply if you sit at an office desk quite a bit without moving too.

Cheers.

I started wearing compression socks as I was fed up with fat ankles, they still swell a bit but overall they do a good job. I pretty much don't do anything else they say though !

Since I got a DVT after breaking my leg/ankle last year I wear compression stockings when flying. Sometimes I even wear them if I know I'm going to be sitting at my desk all day. I do a few of the things on the list in the link, but not all of them.

Cheers.
