If you are just starting to see spider veins show up, you may not know why you need to take care of your varicose veins as soon as possible. They may seem like a slight, cosmetic inconvenience. If there are just a few spider-like veins, and no discomfort or pain, it is understandable that you would not be concerned.
While there is no reason to stress out unnecessarily, you should start taking steps to prevent the spread of your varicose veins and possible inflammation to a degree that you will need surgery.
You may not think that you need to take care of your varicose veins as soon as possible. You may have waited until they were causing you pain or resembled rope-like additions to your normally, shapely legs. You may have a million other things on your list to get done today, and a million more that you wish you could get to, but just won’t.
It is not unusual for us to push our own health aside, at the expense of jobs, work and family; we often relegate our own well-being to the non-priority list. This is a mistake, though.
In the early stages, varicose veins are small. The veins may have just started to become weakened due to inactivity, too much blood flow in the lower extremities, as when a woman is pregnant or a man has to stand at a construction job all day.
The veins could have started to collapse due to obesity or because they simply have a hard time functioning as they should during menopause or puberty, times of great hormonal variance. You need to take care of your varicose veins as soon as possible so that a small inconvenience does not become a huge one.
If you start with super simple remedies, like elevating sore and swollen feet and legs, shifting the position of your chair if you sit at a computer all day, or begin going for walks once daily, you will notice the varicose veins completely recede.
Considering the outlandish costs of varicose vein surgery, different types of laser treatments that require multiple trips to a laser centre, and the malicious effects of some of the chemicals that are used in intravenous injections as a means to cure spider and varicose veins, you might think that you need to take care of your varicose veins as soon as possible instead of waiting until a molehill becomes a mountain, and you are right.
