NFL Football and fantasy football season are in full swing. All over the country, men are checking their teams to see how they are doing, but in general, not often do men take the time to check their own health. And now that fall and winter months are here, it’s a bit harder to see any changes our body may be making as we pile on our sweaters and cold-weather gear.But the National Institutes of Health has estimated that 60% of all men and women have some sort of vein disorder, although it is usually women who ask questions and seek help regarding their legs and veins. Fall months are a perfect time to get checked out especially if you live in an area that has lower sun exposure. The sun can actually worsen minor vein issues because exposure breaks down the collagen under the skin. Dermatologists treat faces for sun exposure and damage and Illinois Vein Specialists treat your legs for sun, age, and genetic issues.
Dr. Stephen Rivard knows first hand that many men feel uncomfortable asking about concerns that might seem as cosmetic. Having treated many men and having been treated himself he can share his experience and knowledge about vein disorder and the benefits of treatment.
Treatment is easy and no downtime is needed afterward. You can enjoy watching football and know that your health is doing well.
