Varicose Veins Treatment

Varicose veins are enlarged, visible veins that protrude just beneath the skin. They’re often blue but can be red or flesh-tones as well. Varicose veins are most commonly found on the legs, and occur in roughly 10 to 20 percent of people over 30, more often in women than in men.

Varicose veins occur when the valves that push blood through the veins do not function correctly, causing blood to accumulate, the veins to expand, and the blood to begin flowing in the opposite direction.

Vericose veins can sometimes be a symptom of a serious health problem, and should be examined by your medical doctor. More often, varicose veins are not serious and may be caused by:

  • Genetics – varicose veins often run in families and may be caused by a genetic predisposition to weaker veins
  • Pregnancy
  • Being overweight
  • Aging
  • Prolonged standing
  • Sedentary lifestyle

How Physiomed Can Help

Mild varicose veins can often be treated by wearing custom compression stockings, which improve circulation by applying just the right amount of continuous pressure on your veins.

We can also help with weight loss programs, providing nutritional counselling, effective clinical conditioning exercise programs and ongoing support from a qualified healthcare professional. Losing excess weight is an important step in alleviating pressure on your veins to treat and prevent varicose veins.

We can also help educate you on simple but important lifestyle changes that can be extremely effective both in treatment and prevention, such as limiting salt intake and avoiding excess sun.

Katalina again...this time showing us the Kettlebell Windmill. This exercise isn't so much a strength building routine, but a way to improve shoulder stability.

✅If you want to train with Katalina in person, visit her at our Nobleton location!
