The Causes Of Varicose Veins: How To Know If You Might Need Varicose Vein Treatment

The middlemost periods of people's lives are their best years. Infants and toddlers require the constant supervision of parents; adolescents aren't yet of their respective countries' age of majority, they're generally required to attend school, and make bad decisions; and seniors, on the other hand, gradually lose their ability to process stimuli with the five senses, they don't find it easy to move without someone else's or a walker's assistance, and are prone to countless diseases and ailments that their younger selves likely wouldn't have been diagnosed with. Some of the most common health issues affecting seniors include osteoporosis, Alzheimer's disease, pneumonia that turns fatal, cancer, and heart disease - including varicose veins.


What is a varicose vein? How does it differ from a healthy vein?

Blood carries oxygen, nutrients, and other building blocks of life throughout the body to wherever they need to go. The heart - as I'm sure you know - pumps blood throughout the body via arteries; on blood's way back to the heart, lungs, and brain, it flows through veins.

Arteries carry blood to the ends of the body, whereas veins transport it from extremities like the head, fingers, and toes.

Veins are generally straight. Even when the body grows and moves veins or blood vessels get knocked out of the way by external stimuli, they alwayshop back in place. When people grow older, the elasticity of their veins diminishes, meaning they are prone to swelling and contortion.

Varicose veins are veins that are enlarged, swollen, contorted, and closer to the surface of the skin than normal. Also known as "spider veins," varicose veins aren't just unsightly - they can cause serious medical problems.

What causes varicose veins?

Blood typically doesn't flow as quickly in older people as it did when they were younger. When blood travels back through the legs on its return trip to the heart to be recirculated, it sometimes slows down and widens blood vessels, causing twists and bends - such leg veins ultimately become highly visible through the skin and move close to the skin.

Getting into an automobile accident can directly cause broken bones and memory loss, for example. Varicose veins almost always take hold in people's bodies in the latter halves of their lives and are caused by genetic factors, overall health, and external factors affecting blood flow.

Age is - by far- the most important variable in the equation used to figure out whether you're at risk or not of developing spider veins. When people get older, their hearts simply aren't as powerful as they once were; this is especially true for people with heart disease and other cardiovascular issues.

If family members have had varicose veins, you should seriously consider heading to your physician to talk about other means of preventing these unsightly blood vessels from forming.

Obese people are many times more likely to develop varicose veins throughout their lives. They're also more likely to develop them earlier on in life than their non-obese counterparts.

People with bad blood flow are inherently prone to varicose veins because slow blood flow in the legs is ultimately what causes the issue.

Some medical providers specialize in varicose vein treatment

Metro Vein Centers - its 12 branches are found throughout New Jersey, Texas, Michigan, and New York - is a medical service provider that specializes in varicose vein treatments.

The company was founded by Dr. Ali Meslemani, a graduate of the Ross University of Medicine, who found his way into the specialized practice of treating varicose veins through the extensive research of surgical techniques for treating these gnarly, sometimes-hideous veins. Now in its 12th year of operation, Metro Vein Centers is a preferred provider of varicose vein treatment across the nation.
