Millions of Americans suffer from varicose veins, those twisted, bulging, discolored veins that usually appear on the legs. Many patients seek varicose vein treatment to remove the problem veins. Garvey Vascular Specialists, a leading vein treatment center in New Hyde Park, New York, says that conservative treatments can help in many cases.
Conservative treatment for varicose veins or spider veins includes things like making healthy lifestyle changes. This might mean getting more exercise, or reducing periods of prolonged standing. Another conservative treatment approach is the use of compression stockings. These tight-fitting stockings are worn on the legs and help keep the blood from pooling.
Conservative vein treatments can be effective for patients with mild cases of varicose veins, says Dr. Julius Garvey, the director of Garvey Vascular Specialists. Recently, the vein specialist has been using social media to educate the public on conservative vein treatments. He recommends that patients talk to their vein specialist about whether to try a conservative therapy as a first-line approach.
