EARLY INTERVENTION IS THE KEY TO PREVENT MORE SERIOUS VEIN ISSUES!
I know there are many of you out there that are concerned about your vein health and all tho you have not started having the signs or symptoms of venous disease, there still are ways to prevent it. Also for those that are just starting to see the first signs of vein disease early intervention can help. At the Alpha Vein Clinic Las Vegas we support the intervention that will meet the patient’s goals.
The recommended form of compression therapy is the use of graduated compression stockings. Compression stockings can offer an alternative to the above procedures in treating varicose veins. They can be effective in relieving symptoms of venous disease, stopping its progression. They also provide an alternative for patients who prefer not to opt for other treatments. The drawback to compression therapy is that stockings must be worn daily.
Compression stockings can be acquired with a prescription. They provide gradient pressure on the leg, which reduces the pooling of blood. Stockings may take some initial adjustment, but they can be worn for years as a long-term solution to manage symptoms of venous disease.
In some cases, elevation of the legs can alleviate the pain or swelling that is the result of early stage venous disease. Elevation of the legs above the heart for a period of three minutes, usually in the morning and several times throughout the course of the day, can encourage blood flow from the legs and decrease the pooling of blood.
Exercising the feet, toes, and ankles is recommended to help reduce symptoms and prevent the onset of venous disease and its progression. Tapping the toes and flexing the feet several times a day, can help blood move up into the legs. This is particularly recommended to those who sit and stand for long periods.
Because venous disease has a strong genetic component, prevention can help those with a family history to avoid and ward off symptoms.
Maintaining a healthy weight and exercising regularly is an important part of maintaining vein health. Because smoking hinders circulation, quitting is an important part of prevention as well. Regular movement to prevent long periods of sitting or standing is also recommended here at the Alpha Vein Clinic Las Vegas we assess an individual’s risks for venous disease and help them develop a prevention plan that is right for them.
