Stop Putting Off Vein Treatment During COVID
August 21, 2020

In these times of uncertainty, there is one thing that you should certainly be paying attention to: your legs.

With the SIP orders in place, it is easy to catch ourselves sitting around in our houses binge watching Netflix day after day. However, in doing this we are limiting our daily activity which increases our risk for blood clots. Therefore, it is very important that you continue to make a concentrated effort to keep your legs moving - whether it is a walk around the house or enjoying some fresh air outdoors. You know how Dory says just keep swimming … just keep walking! 

However, if you begin experiencing any of the following symptoms you should reach out to your doctor as soon as possible:

  • Swelling
  • Burning
  • Itching
  • Throbbing
  • Cramping

We understand that sitting in a waiting room is not ideal during a pandemic, but if left untreated, vein disorders such as spider or varicose veins can lead to more serious health issues. 

These health issues can include:

  • Leg swelling
  • Skin ulcers
  • Skin infection
  • Bleeding
  • Thrombophlebitis
  • Deep Vein Thrombosis
