Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are veins that have become swollen and twisted. They are common in the legs and feet but can occur anywhere. Varicose veins occur when the valves of the vein no longer work properly. If pressure in the vein increases it will bulge and twist. Any condition that puts excessive pressure on the legs or abdomen can lead to varicose veins. Some of the most common causes of varicose veins are pregnancy, obesity, hereditary, age, and standing for long periods of time. Varicose veins may be painless. In others it may cause swelling, pain, itching, and ultimately ulceration of the skin. To help alleviate the pain associated with varicose veins and to prevent them from worsening, one should exercise daily, lose weight, elevated your legs, and avoid standing for extended periods of time.

Sigvaris compression therapy solutions are classified in different models; sock, stockings, pantyhose (with closed or open toe); made of different textures: micro or natural fibers for best comfort, and available in different styles and colors to match your life style and fashion trends.
