What are Varicose Veins?

 

Varicose veins are enlarged, tortuous veins seen in the legs and feet. They may occur as small spider veins or may become extremely enlarged. It is estimated that almost 40% of people above the age of 50 years may have some form of varicose veins.


In the vast majority of patients, these veins cause no discomfort or pain, although they are potentially harmful.

The reasons why the walls of the veins stretch and the valves in your veins weaken which cause varicose veins aren’t fully understood. Some people develop the condition for anonymous reasons.

 

Increased risk

 

A number of things account for the chances of developing varicose veins, including:

 

  • Being female
  • Having a close family member with varicose veins
  • Older age
  • Being overweight
  • Having a job that involves long periods of standing
  • Pregnancy
  • Other conditions 

Gender

Women are more likely to be affected by varicose veins than men because science suggests that this may be because female hormones tend to relax the walls of veins, making the valves more prone to leaking.
Hormones are chemicals produced by the body, and changes may be caused by pregnancy, premenstrual syndrome or menopause.

 

Genetics

Risk of developing varicose veins increases if a person has a hereditary history of it.
This suggests varicose veins may be partly caused by your genes (the units of genetic material you inherit from your parents).
Visit our page on genetics for more information about how you inherit your physical and behavioral characteristics.

 

Age

As one gets older, our veins start to lose their elasticity and the valves inside them stop working as well.

 

Being overweight

Being overweight puts extra pressure on your veins, which means they have to work harder to send the blood back to your heart.
This can put increased pressure on the valves, making them more prone to leaking.
The impact of body weight contributes more in women on the development of varicose veins.
Use the healthy weight calculator to check whether you’re overweight.

 

Occupation

Some research suggests jobs that require long periods of standing may increase your risk of getting varicose veins.
This is because your blood doesn’t flow as easily when you’re standing for long periods of time.

 

Pregnancy

During pregnancy, the amount of blood increases to help support the developing baby. This puts extra strain on your veins.
Hormone levels increases during pregnancy which also cause the muscular walls of the blood vessels to relax, and increases the risk.
As the womb expands it puts pressure on the veins in your pelvic area, which may contribute to varicose veins.

 

Other conditions
In very rare cases, varicose veins is also caused by other conditions.
These include:

 

  • A previous blood clot
  • A swelling or tumor in the pelvis
  • Abnormal blood vessels 

 

SYMPTOMS

 

Many people with varicose veins do not have any physical symptoms. Some people though, may, however, have concerns over the cosmetic appearance of varicose veins.

Symptoms of varicose veins may include:

 

  • Twisted, swollen, and lumpy (bulging) veins.
  • Aching
  • Cramps
  • Swelling
  • Itching
  • Fatigue
  • Blue or dark purple Veins
  • Telangiectasia (spider leg veins)in the affected leg.
  • Skin in the affected area is noticed to be red, itchy and dry.
  • Some individuals experience leg cramps, while suddenly standing up.
  • People also have restless legs syndrome accompanied.

 

Some people complain of pressure and dull ache sensation from varicose veins.

 

More severe but less common symptoms of varicose veins may include bleeding, thrombophlebitis which is the formation of a blood clot within the varicose vein, skin ulceration and a weeping oozing dermatitis or stasis dermatitis. In long-standing venous disease, the skin may become fibrotic and scarred, forming an inverted “hourglass” appearance. These complications of varicose veins should be evaluated by a doctor promptly.

There are many different treatments available for varicose veins. These treatments vary based upon the presence of different symptoms, size, and location of the varicose veins, in cases of accompanying skin changes like swelling, dermatitis or ulceration, etc.

 

Here are some potential treatments briefly talked about, which may include:

 

  • Leg elevation while sitting or sleeping
  • Compression dressings with single or multilayered systems
  • Compression stockings
  • Sclerotherapy (injection of a foam or a liquid into the vein to form a clot and help permanently destroy the vessel)
  • Ablation (destruction) of abnormal veins with techniques using laser, radio frequency, etc.
  • Surgery which includes removal of varicose veins, including “phlebectomy” or vein stripping.

     

In general, laser therapy or sclerotherapy are helpful in treating spider veins (telangiectasias), but anyways ablation and surgery are a better option for larger varicose veins.

Is treatment always necessary?

No, not if varicose and spider veins are primarily a cosmetic problem. Severe cases, especially those associated with ulcers and dermatitis that do not respond to varicose vein physiotherapy treatment, generally demand further treatment.

Thousands of people every year consider getting treatment for varicose veins.

How We Made A Difference

  • physiotherapy for varicose veins, Varicose Veins  Unqualified office staff, when you call to clarify something. Many times they don't understand the question. They are not trained well. The customer care staff needs an upgraded system, where notes are fed into the system. So you don't need someone else calling up and giving you the same info. The caretaker is not trained well. If they are looking after an elderly person, they should know that they have to be in the best of health to look after my mother. She ended not making a meal for my mother and my neighbour had to provide it. If the caretaker is not well she should have asked for a replacement asap and not waited. It is shocking, we have paid a huge amount of money for this service and I am absolutely unhappy. Please do not call for caretaker's from Care24. As long as they are getting their money. They care a damn!!! Worst service providers.

  • physiotherapy for varicose veins, Varicose Veins  We had a ridiculously pathetic experience with them. Took an attendant service, a 10 day offer (rs 600 instead of their regular fee of rs 800), for my mother who had undergone an knee replacement surgery. In six days, 4 different attendants were assigned for no fault of ours. We had terrible experience going through the back-end team trying to explain the importance of sending only one attendant and not a different one every new day. The last person assigned wanted to leave by 5pm even though the timings were from 8am to 8pm. With this many other terrible instances in these 6 days, we had no option but to cancel the services. The back-end team were utterly useless in understanding the importance of having only one person assigned. They kept insisting that we pay for 800rs per day for 6 day and offer of rs 600 per day would be invalid. The management should look into this scam and take immediate action on the team. Note: Even though we wanted the services, we were forced to abandon it with no fault of ours. The back-end team has absolute disregard for the grievances of the client.

  • physiotherapy for varicose veins, Varicose Veins  If there was an option of negative stars then I would have choosen it. They offered me a package of₹ 5950/- for 10 days and after 2 days updated me on new package of ₹5700/- for 7 days without my consent. Even deposited my earlier cheque and then I had to follow up for the balance for about 10 days explaining my issue everyday to the new person on their helpline. They don't acknowledge emails too. Worst experience and definitely not recommended
