Depending on the severity of the varicose or spider veins, surgery may be forgone and short term treatment may be used. In this video, from the makers of Bauerfeind Compression stockings, the cause of varicose veins is explained, as well as how compression stockings will help treat them.
If disease or abnormalities have caused the blood vessels to expand, the valves in the vein will not close. This results in a disrupted flow of blood. Compression stockings will remedy this by applying pressure from the outside. Pressing on the tissue, muscles, and vein walls of the leg gives blood vessels a chance to reform and the vein valves will regain a normal blood flow.
However, compression stockings may only provide treatment of the symptoms of varicose veins, not the cause. In order to learn more about vein treatment options, visit the website of Advanced Varicose Vein Treatments of Manhattan or call us today at (212) 204-6501.
