Vascular Problems We Treat
Spider Veins are one of the most commonly known, and experienced, vascular issues. Effecting up to 60% of adults, Spider Veins display themselves as discolored and jagged lines with a purple and blue hue surrounding the affected area similar to a bruise. Spider Veins are caused by backflow or pooling of blood within a vein. Sclerotherapy helps to eliminate the appearance of spider veins as well as promoting healthier blood flow.
Varicose Veins are a fairly common condition. Although women experience varicose veins at twice the rate of men, both are susceptible to this condition as it affects over 40 million people. These bumpy, twisted & discolored veins, luckily, can be rerouted without affecting circulation using treatments such as RadioFrequency Ablation and Sclerotherapy.
Vascular issues are not just superficial. In many cases, those who are experiencing spider veins or varicose veins, experience swelling, itchiness, sores, and a consistent throbbing. These vascular issues can be treated by seeing a New Jersey Vein Specialist here at Progressive Spine & Sports Medicine.
Leg cramping is a common symptom of vein disease regardless of visible symptoms such as varicose or spider veins. These cramps are painful muscle contractions that can not only wake you up at night but leave a painful feeling in your calf and leg muscles for days following. It’s important to speak to a vascular specialist if you experience leg cramps as it could be a sign of vein disease
Restless legs can be one of the most uncomfortable and irritating symptoms of vein disease. Restless Leg Syndrome, or RLS, is defined as an irritating sensation in the legs that causes constant movement throughout the night. Although the exact cause of RLS is unknown, it is commonly treated alongside vein disease.
Tired legs are a symptom of more than just overworking. This condition can be described as a heavy or weak sensation when walking or moving about. Although Tired Legs can be a symptom of various issues, the sensation is often caused by blood flow or blood pooling. The vascular specialists at Progressive Spine & Sports Medicine can help you identify potential vascular issues that may be causing tired and heavy legs.
