Some things sneak up on you so gradually you don’t realize there is a problem until it becomes severe. That can happen with leg pain. The signs of venous insufficiency can start slowly. You may notice spider veins or varicose veins. Then you start to feel a heavy sensation or tiredness in your legs. You may experience leg pain, cramping and swelling. By this point, you have likely begun to curtail your activities and make lifestyle changes that allow you to stay off your feet. But that doesn’t have to be the case. Make 2021 the year you resolve to deal with leg pain.

3 Reasons to Address Your Leg Pain

  1. You can’t have a healthy body without healthy legs. High-grade scientific evidence shows that regular physical activity is essential for your overall health. If you are suffering from leg pain and other symptoms caused by venous insufficiency, you will reduce your physical activities, leading to a worsening not only of your vein disease but also of your total health.
  2. Your quality of life will be reduced. Many of our patients who have serious vascular disease have given up activities they love—from hobbies like gardening and hiking, to playing outside with their kids and grandkids—due to leg pain and fatigue. Some have even left their jobs, affecting their livelihoods.
  3. The problem will only get worse without treatment. Whatever symptoms you are experiencing today, they will only worsen without treatment, putting your long-term health, well-being, and even your life in jeopardy.
