Vein Disease Treatment
Vein disease occurs when there is an issue regarding the blood flow in the veins. In most cases, this results from long periods of sitting or standing. Vein disease can also be caused by age, pregnancy, sunburn, hormonal changes, or injury.
It is important to note that not all vein diseases can be seen with the naked eye. Vein disease is rooted in unhealthy valves causing the blood to flow in the wrong direction, aggravating the veins, and thus leading to a straining or bulging appearance.
The two most common vein diseases are varicose veins and spider veins. A varicose vein is usually seen in the legs and appears bulging and rope-like, while a spider vein is smaller, thread-like, located in the face and legs just below the surface of the skin, and come in a multitude of colors. While anyone is susceptible to developing varicose veins, you are more likely to develop the disease if family members also have it, as it is hereditary. Spider veins can be found in men and women of varying ages but are more likely to be found in females.
Vein Disease Symptoms
Symptoms of vein disease include neuropathy, pain, swelling, rashes, open sores, itching, restless legs, discoloration, variegated and bulging veins, and visible spider veins, among others.
Vein Disease Diagnosis
Diagnosing vein problems is generally a non-invasive process. A detailed medical history, physical exam, and imaging that includes ultrasound or CT will be performed to accurately diagnose vein disease. The ultrasound will provide an image of the vein structure and detect the strength and direction of blood flow in the veins. Genetic factors play a role in developing vein disease, so it is important to get diagnosed early.
Dr. Jackson strives to pinpoint the issue at hand. However, further diagnostic testing may be needed for the nervous, circulatory, or musculoskeletal systems.
Vein Disease Treatments
Vein problems can become more severe without treatment. It is essential to see a doctor as soon as you have symptoms. There are several minimally invasive treatment options available once your condition has been diagnosed. Below are a few examples of vein treatments recommended and performed by Dr. Jackson:
