What Are Varicose Veins?
Varicose veins are large, twisted, and swollen veins that often appear on the legs and feet, caused by venous insufficiency. This happens when the valves in the veins do not work correctly, leading to sluggish and ineffective blood flow. Women are more prone to venous insufficiency, with 40% being affected, as opposed to only 25% of men. While unsightly, the veins rarely need treatment. However, if you suffer from swelling, aching, and painful legs, or if there is considerable discomfort, you should seek consultation and treatment.
What Are The Treatment Options?
- Lifestyle Modifications – By limiting prolonged bouts of standing, and exercising frequently, one can soothe pain, and even improve the appearance of the veins!
- Compression Stockings – Tightly wound stockings that begin at the ankle and loosen further up the legs can encourage proper blood flow and help with the discomfort!
- In-Office Procedures – If the doctor recommends it, there are many procedures such as venous stenting and laser ablation that take care of varicose veins and their symptoms.
