varicose veins
Varicose veins are caused by blood circulation problems, particularly when veins become enlarged and when the one-way valves that normally prevent blood from flowing “backward” in our veins stop working properly. Blood pressure can increase, and blood can start to pool in the veins, which can result in further inflammation and stretching of the blood vessels. Varicose Vein Symptoms Varicose veins can be responsible for a number of different symptoms,...

Common Causes  Varicose veins can be caused by a variety of different medical conditions that can affect blood circulation, including genetic predisposition...

What is Restless Leg Syndrome? Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) is the term used to describe the overwhelming need to regularly move one’s legs to relieve uncomfortable or painful sensations in the legs.  It’s often caused by a combination of insufficient blood flow in the veins, and by pressure on specific nerves in the legs. The resulting tingling or pricking sensation is often referred to as “pins and needles.”  It generally...
Varicose veins can appear when locally increased blood pressure weakens the walls and valves of your veins, causing the veins primarily in the legs to become enlarged and twisted. There are several causes, including pregnancy, obesity, and standing for extended periods. Varicose veins can be surgically treated, but there are several other treatment options: laser vein therapy and Sclerotherapy, both of which offer practical ways to reduce or eliminate problematic...
