Moderate Varicose Veins

What are Moderate Varicose Veins?

Moderate varicose veins are the next level of varicose veins. They’re not quite as bad as severe varicose veins, but they’re still not a good thing.

Moderate varicose veins are characterized by twisted and enlarged veins that form a spider-like pattern on your skin. If you have moderate varicose veins, it’s best to get checked out by a doctor to determine the severity of your case.

What are the causes of Moderate Varicose Veins?

The causes of moderate varicose veins are generally the same as the causes of severe varicose veins:

Age – Varicose veins are more likely to develop as you age, but they can also occur in younger adults.

Genetics – If you have a family member who has varicose veins, there is a higher chance that you will develop them as well.

Pregnancy or childbirth – Pregnancy and childbirth can cause swelling that contributes to varicose veins.

What are the symptoms of Moderate Varicose Veins?

The most common symptom of moderate varicose veins is aching or tiredness in your legs. You might also feel:

  • Swelling of your ankles, feet, or calves
  • Aching pain in your legs when you walk
  • A tingling sensation in your toes or legs
  • Pain when you stand for long periods of time
  • Itching or burning legs
  • Pale skin on the legs (a sign of poor blood flow)
  • Reddish purple veins on the legs

What are the risk factors for Moderate Varicose Veins?

Moderate varicose veins are a common occurrence in women and men. The risk factors include:

  • Family history of venous disorders.
  • Obesity.
  • Previous surgery on the legs or feet, particularly after childbirth.
  • Diet high in salt or low in water.

How to prevent Moderate Varicose Veins?

There are some simple things you can do to prevent moderate varicose veins.

  1. Exercise regularly – This will help your blood circulation, reduce swelling and improve the flow of blood around your body.
  2. Avoid standing for long periods of time – If possible, sit or stand on an incline to help reduce strain on your legs and ankles.
  3. Maintain a healthy diet – Eat plenty of fresh fruit and vegetables and drink plenty of water to keep your body hydrated and flush out toxins from your system.

What are the exercises for Moderate Varicose Veins?

The exercises for Moderate Varicose Veins are different than the exercises for Mild and Severe Varicose Veins. If you have Moderate Varicose Veins, you will need to do the following exercises:

  1. Walking – It is important that you walk at least 20 minutes a day, three times a week.
  2. Cycling – You can also ride your bicycle for about 30 minutes every other day.
  3. Swimming – You can swim for 30 minutes every other day as well. This will help to improve your circulation by increasing blood flow through your body and muscles, which makes it easier for your heart to pump blood throughout your entire body!

What are the treatments for Moderate Varicose Veins?

Treatment options for moderate varicose veins include:

  • Leg elevation – This can be done by propping your legs up on a pillow or by elevating them with a recliner. This will help reduce swelling and decrease pain.
  • Compression stockings – Compression stockings are tight, elastic bandages that are used to help improve circulation in the legs and reduce swelling. They can be worn daily or only when you have a flare-up of symptoms, depending on your preference and the severity of your varicose veins.
  • Sclerotherapy – Sclerotherapy involves injecting small amounts of medicine into the vein, which causes scarring that blocks blood flow back to the heart. This procedure is usually performed by an electrologist or dermatologist, but some practices also offer this service as part of their vascular services.

What brace is used for Moderate Varicose Veins?

Moderate varicose veins are a common condition that can be treated with compression stockings. Compression stockings are tight, elastic garments worn over the leg to help improve blood flow and reduce swelling. They may also be used to prevent blood clots from forming in the legs.

Compression stockings are available in varying degrees of compression, ranging from mild to moderate. The level of compression depends on the severity of your varicose veins and how well they respond to treatment.

Most people wear their stockings for about 16 hours per day for two weeks, followed by 24-hour wear for another two weeks. After that, you may only need to wear them at night or during long periods of standing or sitting.
