With peak travel season comes the inevitability of extended airport security checks and longer check in lines. While airport congestion may seem unbearable, it is nothing compared to the unbearable congestion of the blood cell trying to travel through the deep veins of our legs when traveling on extended airplane flights resulting in a condition called of Deep Venous Thrombosis, (DVT).
