Varicose veins can be the cause of symptoms from restless legs to open sores
You’re having a hard time climbing the stairs because your legs feel heavy and fatigued. Maybe you have noticed swelling or discoloration but haven’t been able to figure out why. What many people experiencing these symptoms might not know is that varicose veins – also known as venous insufficiency – is to blame for most of these leg symptoms.
Painful symptoms caused by varicose veins can cause the average sufferer to involuntarily slow down. In severe cases, patients lose their ability to move around completely – forcing them into a wheelchair. Whether mild or severe, this condition disrupts and decreases your quality of life. Even worse, once related conditions pop up, they don’t just “go away.” The progression of varicose veins is a significant public health concern that is leaving more and more people in pain and unable to function on a day-to-day basis.
A study found that about 600,000 productive work days are lost each year because of this condition. The good news is that all symptoms of varicose veins can be treated safely and effectively at Allure Medical. Treatments are also covered by most insurances, including Medicare.
Wound care will not cure varicose veins
Venous ulcers caused by varicose veins account for 50% of all wound care visits, and they recur in a couple of years in the majority of cases. Taking the wound care route to treat severe cases of venous insufficiency takes about seven months to resolve the wounds, and about 80% return in a few years. Treating this disease with a non-surgical and safe procedure known as an ablation, leads to the wounds healing in about 2-3 months, with less than a 5% recurrence rate. Allure Medical specializes in this treatment and will not shy away from helping these patients.
