It is normal for those receiving varicose vein treatments to be a bit apprehensive. Often, patients are excited to be rid of their persistent leg pain and other bothersome symptoms brought on by vein disease, yet, there is still some anxiety over treatment. Many wonder what exactly will happen to their blood flow once veins are removed. The good news is varicose vein and spider vein sufferers in Gurnee needn’t worry, as blood flow actually improves when disease veins are removed.
There are many different non-surgical, minimally-invasive treatment options available to remove problem veins such as:
- Endo-Venous Laser Treatment
- Thermal Ablation
- Compression Therapy
Obviously, the type and stage of vein disease will determine which procedure(s) are right for each individual. However, the goal of each treatment option is the same; to get rid of the diseased vein. Removing varicose veins in Gurnee patients will not cause diminished blood flow to the legs. In fact, once these unhealthy veins are eliminated, the blood will be re-routed into healthier veins and improve the rate of venous return to the heart.
It is important to remember that after receiving varicose vein treatment, moving your legs will not cause them harm. Daily activity is essential in maintaining healthy venous tone and to help ward off medical complications such as thrombosis (blood clots).
Regular daily exercise such as going for a walk or using an exercise bike will help patients in the gradual return to normal activity. Prolonged bedrest after the procedure raises the risk of developing blood clots in the deep veins of the legs, a potentially deadly medical condition.
