Exercise and Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are the bulging, enlarged veins most often seen on the legs. Aside from cosmetic concerns, vein disease is chronic and progressive. Without varicose veins treatment, the symptoms and health risks worsen, often affecting the daily quality of life.

However, exercise can help to prevent or minimize the symptoms of varicose veins. During exercise, blood is pumped back to the heart from the calf muscles. Therefore, strong leg muscles can promote healthy blood circulation and can help minimize vein disease.

Aerobic exercise such as walking, biking, running, are all good activities for getting blood circulating and promoting healthy veins. However, it’s important to be careful not to overdo when you have varicose veins, as strenuous activities can put too much strain on the legs.

Although exercise should always be part of a healthy lifestyle, discomfort from varicose veins can make exercise difficult. In addition, while exercise can help the symptoms of varicose veins, it won’t remove them.

However, when exercise is causes too much discomfort and it’s time to consider their removal, two highly effective, non-surgical varicose vein treatment options are available. The first, is endovenous laser ablation. After a local anesthesia is administered, a specialist vein doctor introduces a small catheter into the vein with ultrasound guidance. This is followed by a small laser fiber, which delivers gentle laser energy, causing the vein to close. The procedure takes only about 10 minutes to do and requires no hospitalization or surgery center.

The other is sclerotherapy for varicose veins. During this procedure, a varicose vein specialist uses a tiny needle to introduce an FDA-approved sclerosant into the vein, drops at a time. This gentle, yet effective medication causes the vein to collapse and close. Over time, the closed vein gets absorbed by the body and disappears. The sessions are typically completed in the office, within 20 minutes per leg.

Because no scalpels or sutures are utilized in either treatment, there are no long-lasting scars or keloids. There’s minimal discomfort, and most treatments are characterized as being virtually painless. With these modern therapies, most people can resume their daily activities immediately after treatment. Additionally, most major health insurance carriers provide coverage for the treatment of vein disease and venous insufficiency when medically necessary.

Venous Reflux: Symptoms, Causes and Treatments

Venous reflux, also known as venous insufficiency, is a progressive vein disease that can cause significant circulatory problems, and that commonly produces varicose veins. In the U.S., approximately 25 million suffer from this condition and about one third suffer from symptoms such as skin changes, edema, varicose veins bleeding, and venous leg ulcers.

Venous reflux occurs when the small valves that force blood up toward the heart no longer function normally. This causes blood to pool in the legs, with the veins becoming thick, bulging, and distended. These veins often result not only in an unattractive appearance, but commonly cause leg pain, aching, tired or weak legs, and burning or itching of the skin.

However, treating varicose veins has been modernized by laser surgery for varicose veins. In fact, two highly effective, non-surgical varicose vein disease treatment options are available today.

  • Endovenous Laser Ablation – After a local anesthesia is administered, a vein specialist doctor introduces a small catheter into the vein with ultrasound guidance. This is followed by a small laser fiber, which delivers gentle laser energy, causing the vein to close. The procedure takes only about 10 minutes to do and requires no hospitalization or surgery center.
  • Sclerotherapy for Varicose Veins – During this procedure, a varicose vein specialist uses a tiny needle to introduce an FDA-approved sclerosant into the vein, drops at a time.

Tips to Keep Your Veins Healthy This Winter

Some people eagerly await the cold weather, while others dread the dropping temperatures, and all that goes with it. This year, winter begins on December 21st with the solstice. In fact, the word solstice comes from the Latin words sol, meaning sun, and sistere, to stand still.

Although the word solstice refers to the solar path, standing still and excessive sitting are both factors associated with increased risk for varicose and spider veins during winter. During these colder months, many people prefer to stay indoors, and often their lifestyles become considerably less active than during the warmer seasons. This inactivity causes increased pressure on weakened vein valves in the legs.

Additionally, increased holiday travel can make extended sitting unavoidable, and those extra holiday pounds can put added stress on veins. Yet, by following these tips, it’s possible to avoid adding extra vein stress to your holiday list:

  • Get up frequently and walk around. It doesn’t matter if it’s at home, work, the airport, or even holiday shopping at the mall.
  • Consider a stationary bike or treadmill for easy indoor exercise.
  • Elevate your legs when you must sit for extended periods of time.
  • Cut calories to keep a healthy weight by eating a variety of brightly colored fruits and vegetables. Studies show that eating them can strengthen blood vessel walls, reducing swelling and helping to ease pain.

However, when it’s time to consider consulting with a specialist vein doctor about varicose vein and spider vein treatment, winter may be the best time to do it, as swelling and vein dilation is typically less during these cooler months. The good news is that two highly effective, non-surgical treatment options are available today, endovenous laser ablation and sclerotherapy for varicose veins.

These sessions are typically completed by a varicose vein specialist in the office, within 20 minutes per leg. Because no scalpels or sutures are utilized in either treatment, there are no long-lasting scars or keloids. There’s minimal discomfort, and most treatments are characterized as being virtually painless.

With these modern therapies, most people can resume their daily activities immediately after treatment. Additionally, most major health insurance carriers provide coverage for the treatment of vein disease and venous insufficiency when medically necessary.

The Symptoms and Treatment of Restless Leg Syndrome

Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) is characterized by uncontrollable urges to move the legs and may also include itching, burning and tingling sensations. The symptoms of Restless Leg Syndrome are generally worse when lying down, are relieved by movement or walking, and sufferers may have trouble falling or staying asleep.

Another disorder known as Periodic Limb Movement Disorder (PMLD) may have many different causes, but occurs in about 80% of those with restless leg syndrome. The symptoms are repetitive limb movements that occur during sleep and cause sleep disruption. These limb jerks cause frequent awakenings from sleep and can result in daytime fatigue or sleepiness.

Nearly one fourth of those with restless leg syndrome also have venous insufficiency, and recent medical research has shown that 98% of patients experienced relief from RLS symptoms, simply by treating their venous insufficiency. Venous insufficiency is when there is inadequate flow of blood through the veins most often caused by varicose veins, resulting in the blood pooling in the legs.

Fortunately, there’s restless leg syndrome relief available through modern, effective treatments for restless leg syndrome and periodic limb movement disorder. In fact, two highly effective, non-surgical treatment options are available today, including endovenous laser ablation and sclerotherapy.

With these treatments for restless leg syndrome and periodic limb movement disorder, there’s typically minimal discomfort, treatment is virtually painless, and most people can resume their daily activities immediately after treatment. Additionally, most major health insurance carriers provide coverage for the treatment of venous insufficiency when medically necessary.

Varicose Vein Removal the Pain-Free, Scar-Free Way

vein removal

Generally, those who seek treatment for their varicose veins or spider veins do so for two reasons. Most hope to improve the appearance of these unsightly veins, in addition to resolving the pain and discomfort, and possible health complications that may result from them. Therefore, it is a natural concern that varicose vein removal not be the source of additional pain, or result in unattractive scarring or keloids.

Safe and minimally invasive laser vein treatments eradicate problem veins without scarring, while delivering better results, with no virtually no pain or discomfort. These treatments offer an opportunity for those who suffer from spider veins or varicose veins to eliminate them, without fear of pain or scarring.

With these modern therapies, most people can resume their daily activities immediately after treatment. Additionally, most major health insurance carriers provide coverage for the treatment of vein disease and venous insufficiency when medically necessary.
