Do you remember when you last went to the doctor? On average, Americans go four times a year. In other parts of the world, regular doctor’s visits are common. In Japan, for example, the average is at least 13 visits a year.
Many patients stay away from the doctor because of health insurance issues. For some, the cost of a doctor’s visit is too expensive, so they wait until they have to see one.
Unfortunately, many of our patients come in when their vein health has significantly deteriorated. They ignored the warning signs from their body and waited until the discomfort and pain became almost unbearable to seek treatment.
We can help, even if your vein health issues are severe, but we’d like to encourage you to seek treatment early on. Here are some warning signs to watch out for:
- Frequent swelling around the ankles, especially after long periods of standing
- Large, bulging veins that stand out against the skin
- Blue, green veins that are visible in a type of spider web formation beneath the skin
- Pain and discomfort in your legs
- Restless legs at night
- Itching, patches of eczema, or open sores on your lower body
- Muscle cramping and feelings of heaviness in your legs
If you are beginning to experience any of these symptoms, it’s time to come in for a consultation. We are here to help. Even if there are no obvious markers of lower venous insufficiency, our doctors will use ultrasound technology to look for underlying problems before they become a significant issue.
There is no cure for venous insufficiency. Our treatments are preventative and here to help stop the problem before it gets worse. The earlier we can detect an issue and begin treatment, the better your results.
