There are a number of vein problems you could have that are due to underlying vein disease, also known as venous insufficiency. Some are early signs that mostly just affect appearance, like spider veins. Varicose veins suggest more advanced venous insufficiency. Then there are other problems that you may not realize are signs of vein disease, and still others that are potentially life-threatening. 

Discover the cause of your vein problems – and fix them fast!

Vein Valve Diagram

The root of most vein disorders, venous insufficiency, is when the tiny valves that allow blood to flow only upwards from the legs to the heart begin to fail. When they don’t do their job as designed, these valves permit blood to flow backwards/downwards and pool in the vein. This increases pressure in the venous system, which strains other valves and can lead to further pooling. 

In this way, vein disease is progressive, meaning it will worsen over time. So it’s important to be aware of these vein problems:

Get effective, minimally invasive, in-office treatment with no downtime.

While there are many conditions and symptoms related to your veins, they are all treatable. In some cases, such as DVT, medical intervention is urgently needed. Yet, vein disease will continue to progress and develop without treatment, so you should take action now.
