Venous insufficiency, a condition where the veins are unable to effectively transport blood from the legs back to the heart, may lead to painful conditions such as varicose veins and blood clots.
New York, New York (PRWEB) August 20, 2013
Cardiovascular Associates is announcing the launch of a new campaign to educate the public about leg pain. According to the New York based vein center, leg pain can be caused by a variety of factors, not all of which are obvious. The center hopes to educate the public about some of the lesser known causes of leg pain in order to equip individuals to seek proper treatment for the problem.
A New York Cardiovascular Associates representative explains that leg pain may be caused by damaged or diseased veins. “Venous insufficiency, a condition where the veins are unable to effectively transport blood from the legs back to the heart, may lead to painful conditions such as varicose veins and blood clots. In many cases the pain is best addressed by treating the underlying diseased vein.”
The vein center encourages the public to consider all possible causes for leg pain before making any choices about treatment. More information on this topic will be distributed through the center’s social media outlets throughout the month of August. Interested readers can visit the center’s Facebook and Twitter pages to learn more.

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.
