Venous Disease Treatment in Rock Hill, SC
Venous disease or chronic venous insufficiency is when the valves in the veins in your legs don’t function properly, and blood can’t get back up into your heart. Blood may flow backward or pool in your legs, causing pain, swelling, leg cramps, change in skin color and texture, and varicose veins and leg ulcers. While this is not a life-threatening condition, venous disease can be painful and even disabling. We provide venous disease treatment in Rock Hill, Fort Mill, and Lancaster.
Signs of Venous Disease
Venous Disease is characterized by swollen legs or ankles, tight calves or itchy legs, pain when resting, brown discoloration around ankles and feet, and leg cramps.
Venous Disease Information
Your doctor can diagnose this condition by taking your medical history and symptoms and performing an imaging test to look at the blood flow through the veins in your legs.
There are many treatments for venous disease, including:
- Improving Blood Flow with Elevation and Compression Stockings
