Vein Disease: The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly

Is there really good, bad, AND ugly about vein disease? In most people’s minds, it’s probably pretty much all ugly. However, that may be because many people are misinformed about vein disease, thinking it’s purely a cosmetic issue and one that we can do little about. In truth, although vein disease can be bad, there are things we can do about it. There are good things a spider and varicose veins doctor in NJ can do that will restore our legs to their former health and beauty and leave us feeling much better too. But first, let’s review what we know to be bad…

Why are varicose veins so bad for Hamilton Square, NJ residents?

Varicose veins are a symptom of underlying vein disease. Vein disease results from a gradual weakening in our vein walls and valves, which can be caused by a number of factors. If you are over age 50 or have a family history of vein disease, you are more likely to have it yourself. However, New Jersey vein specialists know that lifestyle factors also play a role in the development of vein disease. Obesity and overweight place extra stress on the veins, making it harder for them to do their job of pushing the blood back up the body to the heart. It’s the same with standing on your feet for long periods of time – then you have gravity working against you, too.

What’s particularly bad about vein disease is the fact that our veins can’t heal without treatment. This means that left untreated, varicose veins could lead to some rather unpleasant consequences, such as deep vein thrombosis (blood clots) or leg ulceration.

So what can possibly be good about vein disease?
