Truths and Myths about Varicose Veins from the Vein Treatment Experts at Medicus Veincare

Medicus Veincare clarifies some common misconceptions about varicose veins.

    WEST PALM BEACH, FL, February 28, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- There is a lot of misinformation circulating in regards to varicose veins. The laser vein removal specialists at Medicus Veincare wish to clarify some of these myths about varicose veins with a dose of the truth.

Truth #1: Varicose veins are a common issue. Roughly 25 million Americans currently have varicose veins in their legs.

Truth #2: Varicose veins are caused by Venous Reflux Disease, otherwise known as Venous Insufficiency. In this condition, blood does not flow back properly from the legs to the heart, causing blood to pool in your legs.

Truth #3: Venous reflux disease and other vein diseases are progressive and can become increasingly painful and debilitating.

Truth #4: Varicose veins caused by Venous reflux disease are linked to genetics. If your parents suffered from varicose veins, you are statistically more likely to have varicose veins yourself.

Truth #5: Varicose veins can progress more quickly with obesity, occupations that require prolonged periods of standing and pregnancy. They cannot be directly caused by simple things like crossing your legs.

Truth #6: Treatment for varicose veins has improved significantly even over the last several years. Vein treatment center Medicus Veincare can help you to remove your painful varicose veins through a variety of minimally invasive outpatient procedures that will have you back to your regular activities the same day.

Truth #7: Your insurance may cover your varicose vein treatments. Often the pain associated with varicose veins makes their treatment a medical necessity, which in turn means that your insurance may cover it.
