Vein Disorders & Venous Insufficiency
Typical vein disorders, like spider veins and varicose veins, are caused by a condition called venous insufficiency. It is a common misconception that these disorders are only a cosmetic concern. Venous insufficiency is a problem with the valves in the veins and often has associated symptoms, such as itching, burning, leg heaviness, or changes in the skin. If left untreated, a vein disorder can progress into worsening health problems, like; leg swelling, throbbing, cramping, or even open wounds and unhealing sores.
