Kihei, Maui, HI. Vein Clinics of Hawaii is releasing a new article in which they talk about a common complaint – chronic leg pain and weakness. According to these Hawaii vein specialists, many people ignore these symptoms because they think they’re the result of overexertion. But if these symptoms occur often, they could be indications of serious vein diseases that require treatment.
According to Dr. Randall S. Juleff, medical director of the vein treatment center in Hawaii, chronic leg pain is often due to two possible vein diseases. “The first, chronic venous insufficiency or CVI, is the most common cause of varicose veins. But it can also cause pain and weakness so profound that patients become effectively disabled. The second is deep vein thrombosis or DVT, which is much more serious because it can cause a potentially fatal stroke or pulmonary embolism.”
These Oahu varicose vein doctors hope that this article reaches a wide audience in the general public and helps them to realize that leg pain and weakness can be the result of serious diseases that require treatment by a specialist. To learn more about vein disease, visit the clinic’s website.
Varicose Vein Treatment Options
Varicose veins and spider veins are quite common afflictions in the United States, affecting up to 30 million people. While women tend to suffer from vein disease more frequently than men, both sexes can be afflicted. Spider veins are usually smaller, web-like veins that might have a tangled appearance, while varicose veins are usually larger, twisted, bluish veins that are raised on the skin.
There are several safe and effective treatment options for varicose veins and spider veins, including the Venefit™ procedure, microphlebectomy, and sclerotherapy. All procedures are minimally invasive, meaning they can be performed on an outpatient basis in the doctor’s office. They all help restore both the health and beauty of the legs with minimal discomfort and minimal downtime.
