People have been suffering from vein disease for centuries, even before it was considered a medical condition. When vein disease finally became recognized and diagnosed by doctors, many people saw the treatment options as worse than the disease itself. Painful treatment options and a lack of knowledge about the severity of vein disease led to millions of people forgoing essential care. Today, over 30 million Americans are suffering from venous disease and many individuals still avoid treatment either because they’re afraid or they don’t fully understand the risks of vein disease.
Varicose veins are blue, enlarged, and twisted veins that are visible and felt under the skin, specifically in the legs and feet. They occur when leaking valves and weakened walls make it difficult for blood to flow back from the legs and feet to the heart.
