Varicose Vein Treatments In Sioux Falls, Watertown, SD and Sioux City, IA

Varicose Veins come in all shapes and sizes and affect millions of people worldwide. In fact, it’s estimated that 80 million Americans suffer from one form of Venous Disorder. They often appear as blue or purple discolorations under the skin’s surface, usually on the legs. Factors contributing to Varicose Veins include:

  • Heredity
  • Aging
  • Prolonged standing
  • Pregnancy or weight gain
  • Leg injury or trauma.

Varicose Vein Symptoms

Vein Disorders are caused when blood doesn’t flow properly through the Vein back to the heart. The pooling of blood in that Vein causes it to swell, leading to discoloration and discomfort. Larger Veins become Varicose Veins while smaller veins are known as Spider Veins. Because most Veins lie deep below the skin’s surface, not all Vein Disorders are visible to the naked eye. This is why it is so important to see a doctor if you are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Leg aching
  • Heaviness
  • Muscle cramping
  • Leg fatigue
  • Restless Legs Syndrome
  • Ankle swelling
  • Itching and burning
  • Skin discoloration
  • Ulcers of the skin
  • Eczema to the lower legs
  • Phlebitis
