Warm, sunny days, chirping baby birds, and blooming flowers; it’s evident that spring is here, and summer is just around the corner. These tell-tale signs also mean that it’s the perfect time to get outside and enjoy the summer sun with friends and family after being cooped up for the long, cold winter we just had. But are your varicose or spider veins stopping you from being as active as you’d like during the summer months?
Put Painful Varicose Veins Behind You
Although many people see varicose veins as just an unsightly cosmetic problem, people with varicose veins may often experience other more serious symptoms such as pain, swelling, throbbing, fatigue, cramps, and more. You may even experience some of these symptoms without the visual indication of varicose veins if they are below the surface. Someone who is experiencing these types of symptoms might be in too much discomfort to be able to enjoy activities like running, sports, or even walking. Unfortunately, varicose veins are not really preventable since they are usually hereditary. The good news is that treatment is easy, and can be covered by insurance.
Send Spider Veins Packing
Spider veins, like varicose veins, are not really preventable. Although spider veins might not be as serious or as painful as varicose veins, many people feel self-conscious about the way spider veins look. If you feel embarrassed about the way your legs look when you slip into a sundress or comfortable summer shorts, there are corrective options available to you, and they’re easier than you might think. That’s why Vein Institute of Connecticut offers free vein consultations with vein specialist Dr. Afshar. With this consultation, we can find the best course of action to correct your painful or unsightly vein issues and get you ready for summer fun!
