Individuals who sit or stand in the same position for an extended period of time have a much higher risk of varicose veins than individuals who move about regularly.
La Vista, NE (PRWEB) September 05, 2013
The Heartland Vein and Vascular Institute is launching a new campaign designed to educate the public on the leading causes of varicose veins. While age and heredity do have an impact on a person’s risk of varicose veins, lifestyle changes can help to reduce the risk, says the La Vista, NE based vein center. The center is encouraging the public to learn more about what causes varicose veins in order to lower the incidence of this vein condition.
Dr. Thomas Whittle, a leading vein doctor at the Heartland Vein and Vascular Institute, explains that there is a strong correlation between level of activity and varicose vein risk. “Individuals who sit or stand in the same position for an extended period of time have a much higher risk of varicose veins than individuals who move about regularly. Taking regular breaks to move around will encourage circulation and lessen varicose vein risk.”
The center will be providing information on the leading causes of varicose veins through its social media outlets, including Facebook and Twitter. This campaign will run throughout the month of September.

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.
