You’re not sure where this leg pain is coming from, but you know that you don’t like it. If you find yourself suffering from leg pain, you may decide that waiting for it to go away on its own is the best course of action. However, if your discomfort is caused by a problem in your veins, waiting it out may only leave you with more serious complications. In many cases vein disease treatment in NJ is necessary to make leg pain go away.
Why do I need vein disease treatment in NJ to make my leg pain go away?
In some cases your leg pain may be caused by a problem in your veins. Both deep vein thrombosis (a blood clot of the deep veins) and varicose veins can cause pain. Both of these issues may be symptoms of a bigger problem: venous insufficiency. Venous insufficiency occurs when veins are unable to effectively move blood out of the lower extremities and back to the heart, leaving you with poor circulation and a host of uncomfortable symptoms. In order to address the pain caused by these problems, you must first treat the venous insufficiency.
Fortunately, vein treatment is not a painful or time-consuming undertaking. Today’s forms of vein treatment allow for a quick, effective, safe, and virtually pain-free experience. Instead of using surgical incisions and general anesthesia to address vein problems, today’s doctors (including Dr. John Chuback) can seal off problematic veins with only a very small needle or catheter. In most cases the treatment area is treated with a local anesthetic, making the entire procedure virtually pain-free.
Why not wait to treat leg pain?
Even if vein treatment is a quick and comfortable undertaking, you may still find yourself putting off calling your nearest vein center. However, the longer you put off treating your problematic veins, the higher the risk of complications. If left untreated, both deep vein thrombosis and venous insufficiency can lead to serious and potentially deadly problems. If you are suffering from deep vein thrombosis, you run the risk of a piece of the clot breaking off and traveling through the bloodstream. If that clot reaches the lungs, a potentially fatal pulmonary embolism may occur. Venous insufficiency may continue to cause you discomfort if left untreated and may eventually cause skin changes and chronic ulceration.
Many patients feel they don’t have the time to undergo a surgical procedure. With vein disease treatment in NJ this is not an issue. Minimally invasive vein treatments can be completed quickly, in many cases in as little as an hour. Patients also enjoy a very short and comfortable recovery period and are often able to resume their daily activities immediately after treatment.
