Leg pain causes:
Although, there are potentially many reasons for leg pain, it is important to note that none are a normal part of aging and need to be investigated.
Leg pain can be caused by abnormalities in muscles, bones, nerves or blood circulation. Most medical practitioners do a very good job investigating causes that relate to the bones, nerves, muscles and even the arterial circulation. A very common and agonizing cause of leg pain that is not well understood by most doctors is poor circulation of blood in the veins causing Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI).
Leg pain caused by (CVI) is typically worse after prolonged standing or sitting. In advanced cases, the pain may be constant and even excruciating , interfering with moving around or walking. This would be in contrast to peripheral arterial disease (PAD). Patients with (PAD) most commonly have calf pain with walking and resolution of the pain after stopping for only a few minutes.
Venous insufficiency is a progressive medical condition in which the valves that allow the blood to travel from the legs to the heart no longer function. This can cause blood to pool in the legs causing veins to swell. The incorrect blood flow (or reflux) causes the blood to seep into the tissues and cause leg pain .
Patients with chronic venous insufficiency (CVI) of lower extremities can often present with complaints of leg cramps, fatigue, swelling, restless legs, and varicose or spider veins, in addition to the leg pain or ache . In more advanced cases, skin discoloration (Stasis Dermatitis) and skin hardening (fibrosis and panniculitis) as well as dreadful ulcerations (Venous Ulcers) may develop.
How is CVI treated in your Legs?
We will first get a thorough history and examine your legs. The confirmation of the diagnosis requires a specialized ultrasound of your legs that we will do in our Alpha Vein Clinic .
Venous insufficiency is nicely treatable through a simple in-office and only minimally invasive procedure. It is performed under local anesthesia and is well covered by most insurance companies. Early treatment is crucial to prevent further complications. Since the valves in the legs cannot be repaired, the only alternative is to reroute the blood flow from the diseased veins to healthy veins. Traditionally, this has been done by surgically removing (stripping) the troublesome vein from your leg. The Venefit procedure, however, provides a less invasive alternative to vein stripping by simply closing the diseased vein. Once the diseased vein is closed, it remains harmless in the body.
Minimally Invasive Treatments for your legs:
Today, there are a number of minimally invasive treatment options that are covered by many insurance plans. While treatments like compression stockings are often first prescribed to manage symptoms, there are a variety of treatments that can actually treat the diseased veins to eliminate varicose veins, improve your quality of life and halt the progression of (CVI)
