Understanding What Causes Varicose Veins

Varicose veins are those enlarged veins that pop up and become ‘twisted’. They are noticeable to the naked eye and can cause a lot of discomfort. It is best to get treated as soon as possible for aesthetic and health reasons.


To understand why varicose veins should be treated effective immediately by a professional, it is pertinent to look at the causes.

The reason for these enlarged, blue veins popping out has to do with the accumulation of blood. Varicose veins are present in your legs for the majority of cases and this is because of gravity. The blood flow is heavily directed towards the legs (which happen to be at the bottom of our bodies).

The reason for the enlarged veins and the accumulation of blood has to do with a poorly functioning valve or vein wall.

Further Issues

It is important to have this issue taken care of as soon as possible to ensure the problem does not worsen. Varicose veins can be a sign of future health related concerns such as ulcers forming. The lack of reasonable blood flow can cause excessive damage to the body and should be looked after right away.

Have the varicose veins assessed by a medical professional with years of experience, such as Dr. Richard Mueller, to gauge the severity of your condition. It is essential to note down other symptoms that are related to varicose veins too. These symptoms include minor swelling in the area, aching, or a feeling of heaviness in the area.

It is essential to pay attention to these symptoms and ensure you are ready to have treatment completed.

Injury or even pregnancy (i.e. hormonal changes) can cause varicose veins to appear and become an issue. Make sure you are paying attention to these changes and having them looked at right away.
