You have several options to reduce the pain and swelling in your legs. First of all wear good comfortable shoes and try to vary your position often. Second, wear compression stockings which can be prescribed by your physician or recommended by your pharmacist. Third, when sitting, elevate your legs to help the blood flow back up toward the heart. Other options include massage therapy to help improve your circulation, weight reduction if you are overweight especially around the abdomen or sclerotherapy.
Sclerotherapy is a medical procedure whereby a medication is injected into the affected veins. If done properly this can result in marked reduction of bulging veins and an improvement in aching legs. In order to see if you are a candidate for sclerotherapy either consult your physician or call me for your no-obligation consultation.
