Spider and Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are abnormally enlarged, bulging, bluish and lumpy-looking veins on your calves of the inside of your legs. Varicose veins often run in families and affect more women than men. In addition to not looking very attractive, varicose veins may also cause discomfort including aches, leg cramps, swollen ankles and feet. Poor circulation is thought to be the main cause for varicose veins possibly accompanied by malfunction of the valves inside the blood vessels.

Treatments for varicose veins include radiofrequency ablation and laser ablation where the veins are sealed shut, sclerotherapy where a chemical is injected to cause the blood to clot, compression stockings to relieve the pressure in the legs and finally natural remedies for varicose veins which can be used at home such as Butcher’s Broom and Horse Chestnut.
