Conservative Therapy for Varicose Veins

When thinking of treatment options for varicose veins, people typically think in terms of surgical options or non surgical procedures such as sclerotherapy.  In certain cases, however, it is recommendable to opt for conservative therapy before seeking out other treatment options.

Conservative therapy involves negligible changes to a patient’s lifestyle, and can successfully alleviate the symptoms of varicose veins such as burning, itching, and discomfort.  Common conservative therapy techniques include compression stockings, periodic elevation of the legs throughout the day, anti-inflammatory medication, and prescription medical food.  In most cases a combination of these techniques are used.

If it is determined that conservative therapy is not enough to alleviate the discomfort caused by varicose veins, the next step is to consider non-surgical treatment options.  Non-surgical procedures are safe, quick, and almost completely painless treatment options.  Non-surgical procedures include sclerotherapy which utilizes an injection into the vein, and laser therapy.
