Venous Insufficiency

WHAT is it?

Venous insufficiency is a condition that occurs when the venous wall and/or valves in the leg veins are not working effectively, making it difficult for blood to return to the heart from the legs. This causes blood to “pool” or collect in these veins

WHEN does it hurt?

Venous insufficiencies are not generally painful, but may cause a heavy, tired or achy feeling in the legs. If left untreated, venous insufficiencies may result in an underlying condition of Edema, spider veins or varicose veins.

WHY do I have it?

Venous insufficiency is a result of the valves that pump blood throughout the don’t don’t work like they should, causing some of the blood to pool or collect in the veins.


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