Is drinking water good for varicose veins?
Drinking plenty of water is great advice for overall wellness and health. Drinking sufficient water also improves overall blood circulation and strengthens the muscles that support the veins, thus helping you maintain good vascular health. However, drinking water won’t improve your varicose veins or alleviate the symptoms. That’s because the presence of varicose veins indicates that some of your veins are already damaged, possibly with malfunctioning valves. As such, the only way to treat varicose veins is to undergo medical treatment at a reliable vein center.
How can I repair my veins naturally?
You can’t ‘repair’ your veins naturally. If your veins are damaged, i.e., if you have chronic venous insufficiency, spider veins, or varicose veins, you must consult a reliable vein doctor specializing in minimally invasive treatments. The vein doctor will use multiple techniques, such as medical adhesives, radiofrequency energy, laser energy, or mechanical pressure, to close or destroy the diseased veins. This will liberate the accumulated blood, making them reroute into healthier leg veins. Over time, the diseased vein will get absorbed by the body.
As such, you can’t repair damaged veins, but you can make certain lifestyle changes to alleviate the harsh symptoms of vein disease and prevent future vein disease recurrence. The following are some lifestyle guidelines to improve vascular health:
- Wear compression stockings to push accumulated blood towards the heart.
- Engage in exercises that work your calf muscles and push blood towards the heart.
- Elevate your legs while sitting to make blood flow towards the heart.
- Avoid sitting or standing still for long periods to prevent blood accumulation in the legs.
What exercise is best for varicose veins?
Running, swimming, cycling, and yoga are the best exercises for varicose veins and spider veins. These exercises activate your calf muscles, thereby pushing the accumulated blood towards the heart. Furthermore, these exercises also increase your blood circulation to improve vascular health. However, exercising might alleviate the symptoms of varicose veins for a while, but they don’t treat varicose veins or the underlying venous insufficiency. The only way to treat varicose veins is through minimally invasive vein treatments.
Are varicose veins and spider veins the same?
Varicose veins and spider veins may be symptomatic of the same underlying condition, chronic venous insufficiency, but they’re not the same. Spider veins are dense red/ blue clusters of blood vessels visible on the skin’s surface, whereas varicose veins are thick knots of blood vessels bulging out of the skin’s surface. As such, varicose veins are caused by excessive blood accumulation due to advanced vein disease. If you have varicose veins, you must consult a vein doctor immediately.
How do I know I need vein treatment?
You know you need vein treatment if you have the signs and symptoms of venous insufficiency. The most obvious signs you need vein treatment are spider veins and varicose veins. However, you should also look for other warning signs of venous insufficiency — leg heaviness, frequent leg cramps, restless leg syndrome, throbbing leg veins, leg swelling, and leg pain. The symptoms of vein disease worsen with time, so you must seek treatment at the earliest stage possible.
Is vein treatment covered by insurance?
Minimally invasive vein treatments are covered by most insurance plans if you have underlying chronic venous insufficiency. Endovenous radiofrequency ablation and laser ablation, in particular, are covered by most insurance providers. However, spider vein treatments, such as sclerotherapy, are only covered by insurance if you have underlying vein disease as well. Your vein doctor in Woodland Park will assess your insurance coverage options and help optimize your coverage.
