Top best answers to the question «Should you elevate legs with a blood clot»

  • Elevation of the legs is helpful in increasing blood flow and decreasing venous congestion and possible clot formation, but ONLY IF the legs are above heart level. Putting your feet on a footstool or in a recliner chair is NOT elevation, since your legs are still below heart level.
