Leg pain and swelling that doesn’t go away on its own should be seen by a medical professional in order to rule out a life-threatening disease.
Nashville, TN (PRWEB) December 01, 2013
December 1st, 2013. Nashville, TN. The Siragusa Vein and Laser Center is releasing a new article to reveal the reasons why swollen, achy legs have a direct impact on a patient’s quality of life. The Nashville based vein center says that swollen legs and ankles can keep people from enjoying their daily activities, as well as stop them from doing some of the simple things they need to do every day.
Dr. Tif Siragusa, a leader in vein disease treatment in Nashville, says that pain and swelling in the leg may be the sign of a serious condition and should not be overlooked. “Deep vein thrombosis is a dangerous condition in which a blood clot forms in the veins deep inside the legs. Even though about half the cases of DVT are asymptomatic, pain, swelling and redness may be present in the affected leg.”
By receiving prompt treatment for vein disease, patients are able to improve not only their vein health, but can also get back on their feet and start doing the activities they enjoy. The Siragusa Vein & Laser Center hopes the information they provide to the public will improve the quality of life for many Nashville patients. More information on swollen legs and ankles, as well as other topics related to vein health, can be found on the Center’s website: http://www.nashvilleveincenter.com/.
Varicose Vein Treatment Options
At the very least, varicose veins have an unpleasant appearance. However, they can also lead to other serious consequences such as painful, swollen legs. Over half of all Americans have some form of vein disease. Aging is probably the biggest offender in terms of risk factors for the development of varicose veins.
Is it an overgeneralization to say that we all want to look younger and healthier? Certainly, many of us do. With modern advances in technology, there are multiple treatment options available for varicose veins. Sclerotherapy, endovenous laser treatment and microphlebectomy are but a few. Now you see them…now, you don’t. In the hands of leading vein doctors, it is often just that simple.
