Identify symptoms of Venous Insufficiency and how NJ Spine and Wellness can help you return to a pain free lifestyle.
Healthy veins in your legs keep blood flowing back to the heart. When the valves stop working properly, blood can flow backwards towards your feet, a condition called reflux. This causes blood to pool in the veins of your lower leg. Although reflux can lead to varicose veins and spider veins, other symptoms such as leg pain, heaviness, cramps, and restless legs can also occur. When left untreated, these and other symptoms can progress into a more serious condition called chronic venous insufficiency (CVI).
From the convenience of any NJ Spine and Wellness location, a 10 minute ultrasound can map the superficial veins of your legs. Combined with a thorough medical history and examination, our doctors are able to determine if you have chronic venous insufficiency, and develop a treatment plan to address your symptoms.
With the proper treatment, the progressive symptoms associated with CVI can be addressed in a few ways. Patients often experience some symptom relief with Normatec Recovery Therapy, and/or compression stockings, but a Vein Ablation procedure addresses your blood flow issues from inside your body. The team at NJ Spine and Wellness can help you explore your options.
A Vein Ablation uses heat to close the diseased vein, which redirects blood flow to healthy veins relieving symptoms. This procedure does not need to be performed at a hospital, and can be performed under local or general anesthesia
