About Vein Conditions

Your veins are vessels that carry blood from your body’s tissues back to your heart and lungs to pick up more oxygen nutirents  before being re-circulated through your body. The muscles in your legs in addition to our heart aid in this process by contracting to help pump the blood upward.

 

Each vein has tiny valves inside it to keep the blood flowing in the right direction; this one-way traffic "cop" keeps blood from flowing backward. However, a malfunction can occur in one or more of these valves -- a common condition we call "venous insufficiency" or commonly, "venous reflux."  Venous insufficiency is what causes varicose veins and spider veins in 30 – 40 million Americans.
