Comprehensive Vein Treatment Center Publishes New Article Explaining Vein Disease in Simple Terms

November 11th, 2013. Hamilton Square, NJ.  The Comprehensive Vein Treatment Center, specializing in vein disease treatment in New Jersey, is launching a new campaign to explain vein disease in simple terms.  According to the Hamilton Square, New Jerseyvein center, vein disease affects half of all Americans over the age of 50, and aging, heredity, obesity, the female gender, inactivity and frequent periods of prolonged standing or sitting all play a role.

Nevertheless, the causes of vein disease are poorly understood by the general public. One of the best vein doctors in New Jersey, and Comprehensive Vein Treatment Center Director, Dr. Imtiaz Ahmad says, “Varicose veins are nothing but tired. Our veins have been doing thankless work for decades – pushing blood up from the legs to the heart. They finally give up and get flabby.” Veins depend on our leg muscles to contract and squeeze the veins to push the blood upward. Veins also depend on their inner one-way valves which are supposed to shut after blood passes upward and prevent blood from leaking back down. When these valves malfunction, blood tends to “pool” in the legs. The veins dilate and twist and varicose veins are formed.

The Comprehensive Vein Treatment Center hopes that by providing this information to the public, some of the mystery behind vein disease will be dispelled. And more people will understand the need for leg exercise, weight control and physical activity in the prevention of vein disease.

Varicose vein treatment options

Vein disease affects about half of all Americans over the age of 50. Varicose veins are a symptom of vein disease. They result from malfunction of their one-way valves which normally prevent blood returning to the heart from backing up into the legs. When blood backs up, pressure in the veins builds up and the veins bulge.

Men and women afflicted with varicose veins cannot help but be annoyed by their appearance. Too often, varicose veins lead to more serious problems such as leg pain, cramping and swelling. In the hands of highly skilled vein doctors, procedures such as sclerotherapy, radiofrequency ablation, endovenous laser treatment and microphlebectomy can safely and effectively eliminate varicose veins.
