Why do vein valves become damaged or ineffective?

There are a number of reasons why your leg veins may not be working properly. A number of factors can increase your risk of developing a venous leg ulcer, including:

Varicose veins are the swollen veins that are caused by malfunctioning valves. Varicose veins are most commonly genetic, due to hormonal changes or caused by certain lifestyle choices.

Pregnancy making your veins work harder with added pressure.

Lack of exercise can cause the calf muscles in legs to be weak and not contract properly. These muscles when healthy assist proper blood flow up the leg.

Increasing or older age leads to valves in veins to be overworked, tired and weak.

Symptoms of oncoming or present venous ulcers are pain, itching, swelling, thickening and discoloration of the skin.

Treatment of venous ulcers

Treatment of venous ulcers can be greatly effective in finally closing that open wound that may be present on the lower leg. It is minimally invasive and nearly painless to treat the underlying vein issue, causing the ulcer. If you are suffering from vein disease start by wearing compression stockings during the day. These stockings assist healthy blood flow and allow the blood to flow more effectively. Elevate the affected leg. The higher the leg is elevated the less pressure on the vein walls. Now you have an excuse to put your feet up whenever possible!
