The Prevention and Treatment of Varicose Veins

Most cases of varicose veins occur in the legs and are caused by a malfunction in the valves in the veins in the legs that normally keep the blood flowing back to the heart. When these valves malfunction, or leak, the veins in the legs begin holding more blood than usual and become distended. Even the small capillaries are affected creating spider veins. Usually the veins in the legs look blue and are close to the surface, twisted or larger than normal. Varicose veins may produce no symptoms. Sometimes there may be a feeling of heaviness in the legs or they may seem to tire easily. Swelling may occur around the ankles and the legs may ache or cramp.
