Varicose Veins

WHAT is it?

Varicose veins are gnarled, enlarged veins that appear dark purple or blue in colour. Any vein may become varicose, but the veins most commonly affected are those in your legs and feet.

WHEN does it hurt?

For most, varicose veins are simply a cosmetic concern however, varicose veins can cause an achy or heavy feeling in legs, burning, throbbing or itchy sensation, and increased pain after standing or sitting for long durations.

WHY do I have it?

Wear and tear on the valves in your veins that help regulate blood flow. Eventually, that wear causes the valves to allow some blood to flow back into your veins where it collects instead of flowing up to your heart.


Compression stockings can help improve blood circulation by applying a mild compression to valves in your legs, helping pump blood back to the heart.
