Treating Venous Insufficiency and Other Vein Problems
During your Free Vein Screening at Premier Vein and Pain Center, we will provide a comprehensive screening for venous insufficiency. This includes an evaluation and consultation with a provider and a complete ultrasound evaluation. Depending on the results of the screening, we will discuss treatment options with you.
Venous insufficiency is a problem with the flow of blood in the veins from the legs back to the heart. Veins have valves that keep the blood moving in one direction – toward the heart. With venous insufficiency, the valves in the veins of the leg don’t function properly. This allows blood to leak backwards and pool in your veins.
Symptoms of venous insufficiency you may be experiencing might include:
- Dull aching, heaviness, or cramping in your legs.
- Pain that gets worse when you stand for long periods and gets better when you put your feet up.
- Restless legs.
- Swelling of the legs, especially at the end of the day.
- Discoloration of the legs and ankles.
- Visible varicose veins (swollen or ropey-looking veins).
- Wounds on your legs or ankles that are slow to heal.
If you have any of these symptoms, contact us today to schedule a FREE Vein Screening.
Vein problems we see most frequently are:
Varicose Veins — veins in which the valves no longer function properly, which allows the blood to leak backwards, causing the veins to enlarge
Pelvic Congestive Syndrome — varicose veins in the pelvis in women that cause intermittent or persistent dull pelvic pain, pressure, and heaviness
Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) — a blood clot in a deep leg vein
