Smoking encourages blood to ‘clump’ together, while a lack of exercise hinders proper circulation. By quitting smoking and engaging in regular exercise, an individual can reduce his or her risk of experiencing deep vein thrombosis.
New York, NY (PRWEB) August 15, 2013
Cardiovascular Associates is launching a new social media campaign to educate the public about Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) risk factors. Lifestyle habits, including smoking and level of exercise, can have an impact on an individual’s level of DVT risk, says the New York based vein center. The center hopes to equip the public with information that will help prevent this potentially dangerous type of blood clot.
A center representative explains that smoking and living a sedentary lifestyle can increase an individual’s risk of DVT. “Smoking encourages blood to ‘clump’ together, while a lack of exercise hinders proper circulation. By quitting smoking and engaging in regular exercise, an individual can reduce his or her risk of experiencing deep vein thrombosis.”
The center is turning to social media to provide the public with actionable information that will lead to improvements in health. Information on DVT risk factors will be available on the center’s Facebook and Twitter pages throughout the month of August.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options
Varicose veins and spider veins are extremely common in men and women. While spider veins are very small, reddish veins on the surface of the skin, varicose veins are much larger, bulging, tangled veins that may appear bluish in color. Men and women suffer from varicose veins, although women are much more likely to have them.
Today, patients have access to a number of effective varicose vein treatment options. Advancements in technology and medicine have led to the development of effective, minimally invasive treatments that produce optimal results with few side-effects or downtime. These treatments include sclerotherapy, radio frequency ablation, phlebectomy, and endovenous laser ablation.
