Swollen, Achy Legs

Swollen, achy legs could be a symptom of something more serious.

This month, New York Cardiovascular Associates (NYCVA) has implemented a social media campaign to alert the public to the potential dangers of swollen, achy legs. According to the New York-based vcenter, these symptoms might indicate a far more serious threat to a person's health, so prompt diagnosis and treatment are important.

"Though there are many potential causes of swollen legs," says a New York Cardiovascular Associates representative, "some of them, like vein disease, could be life-threatening due to the possibility of deep vein thrombosis or blood clots. Modern treatments for vein disease are minimally invasive, fast and easy. Patients can return to their normal routine immediately, with little or no limitations. So, there's no reason not to take advantage of what modern technology and medicine has to offer."

The NYC vein treatment center, New York Cardiovascular Associates, hopes that by spreading the word through this social media campaign that people who suffer this condition will be motivated to contact a NYC vein specialist to diagnose and protect their health. In addition to articles and information on their website, the Center will run the social media campaign throughout the month of November, making use of Facebook and Twitter.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options

Over 30 million people in the United States suffer from varicose veins and spider veins, making it a very common affliction. Varicose veins are large, bulging, sometimes twisted veins that are usually bluish in color. Spider veins are smaller, reddish veins that may appear tangled or similar to a spider’s web. Both men and women can have vein problems, but women are more likely to experience them.

Modern vein treatment options are effective, safe, and accessible to everyone. New technological developments have led to minimally invasive treatments that have excellent results with few side effects and minimal downtime. The most popular treatments include microphlebectomy, sclerotherapy, radio frequency ablation and endovenous laser treatment.
