Varicose veins are blood vessels that cease to function properly. They are enlarged veins that appear blue, red or flesh-colored. These dilated and swollen veins surface on the thighs, backs of the calves or on the inside of the leg, and should be removed. More than 40 percent of the population over the age of 30 suffers from varicose veins. Not only are these veins unsightly, but also cause severe pain and uneasiness. In some cases, it can result in grave medical problems leading to serious complications. Sores or skin ulcers, bleeding, superficial thrombophlebitis and deep vein thrombosis are some of the serious health problems that may develop as a result of neglecting varicose veins.

Varicose veins are unable to carry blood from the legs towards the lungs and heart, as the blood is moving against gravity. As gravity pulls the blood downwards, it flows in the opposite direction and over-fills these veins. Blood circulation then becomes a problem. Night cramps, heavy tired legs, aching, and itching are other effects of varicose veins. Unless treated, these swollen veins can also cause blood clots, skin ulcerations and inflammation in the veins. During pregnancy, varicose veins can form around the vagina and buttocks. Although varicose veins may not be dangerous to your health at the early stages, they can lead to many health complications in the latter stages.

Dr. Reese offers the latest techniques for relief that prove easier and less painful to varicose veins patients. With over a decade of experience, he firmly believes that a combination of different approaches is the solution to provide the best relief for varicose veins. The legs will feel lighter and stronger because venous circulation improves, thereby helping the body turn harmful blood flow into stronger, healthier and deeper veins.
