Pain in the legs can be caused by several vein conditions. These include:
Varicose veins appear bulging and twisted and can cause pain, swelling, and other health complications. Varicose veins arise when weakened valves allow a backflow of blood through your veins, causing the blood to pool within your blood vessels, so they become enlarged and protruding.
Venous insufficiency occurs when weak valves in your blood vessels prevent your blood from circulating back to your heart. Venous insufficiency can cause varicose veins and over time can contribute to pain, swelling, cramps, ulcers, and blood clots.
Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is a condition in which arteries in your legs become narrow and constricted, restricting adequate blood supply to your tissues. PAD is most often caused by built-up fatty deposits within arterial walls.
Dr. Golshan at Beach Wellness MD specializes in nonsurgical vein treatments that address the underlying venous conditions that cause leg pain. Depending on your condition, Dr. Golshan may recommend a combination of therapies to relieve your pain and improve your vein condition.
Treatments for varicose veins and venous insufficiency are less risky and require less downtime than vein surgery. Most patients can resume daily activities right away. These treatments include:
Varithena is an FDA-approved injectable foam that causes the primary abnormal vein to collapse. Blood flow is then naturally redirected to healthy veins.
Sclerotherapy involves a custom-formulated liquid or foam medication injected into smaller, branching veins. The medication hardens the veins, rerouting blood flow. Your immune system eventually eliminates the damaged blood vessels.
Treatments for PAD include several minimally invasive flow procedures that can open constricted arteries. They include:
Flow treatments for PAD are outpatient procedures that Dr. Golshan performs right in the office. Flow treatments don’t require large incisions, but you do need to rest for 24 hours after your procedure and restrict yourself to light activities for up to a week.
