Only after an accurate diagnosis is made treatment can begin. In mild cases of vein disease conservative treatments may be all that’s needed. This may be limited to minor lifestyle changes such as wearing compression stockings. Most patients with vein problems severe enough to seek specialty treatment for require more in depth treatment, however.

More Benefits, Less Risks

Vein disease affects tens of millions of American adults each year. The considerable drawbacks of older techniques such as Vein Stripping, however meant many patients chose not to seek treatment. The advent of newer, ultra-safe, minimally-invasive techniques like the ones detailed above have changed this equation completely, however. The benefits now consistently outweigh the risks. This means that even the most severe vein disease can be successfully treated in most cases.

Symptoms of Vein Disease

It’s also important to realize that vein disease is a legitimate medical issue. This means that your health insurance may cover treatment. Consider how your legs feel on a daily basis. Do you experience any of the following?

  • Tired, achy legs that feel worse at the end of the day?
  • Swollen ankles and lower legs. This is often relieved by brief periods of elevation.
  • Large, ropey surface veins (varicose veins).
  • Smaller varicose veins (reticular veins)
  • Clusters of bluish, reddish, or purplish spider veins
  • Changes in skin texture or color. These may become permanent in some cases.
  • Ulcers and other non-healing wounds. These typically occur only in the most serious cases, yet can lead to amputation if left untreated.

Causes Of Vein Problems

Varicose veins can be caused by weak or broken valves. Blood is transported throughout the body through arteries from the heart.

Blood is returned to the heart by veins from the rest of the body.

Leg veins must defy gravity in order to return blood to the heart.

Elastic vein walls and muscle contractions in the lower legs help blood return to the heart.

Veins have tiny valves that open to allow blood to flow toward the heart and seal to prevent it from flowing the other way.

Blood can flow backward and pool in the veins if these valves are weak or broken, which can stretch or twist the veins.
