How does it work?
In a nutshell, varicose veins form in the body as a result of a condition called vascular disease. The blood flow to certain body areas can become blocked or damaged, which leads to the varicose veins.
When a person's circulation becomes impaired, his or her blood pressure will increase. This can cause the varicose veins to form. As blood is being pumped around the body, the blood vessels in the leg veins (venules) become constricted. The constriction prevents blood from reaching the feet. This can be especially common with elderly people who may not have enough blood flow to reach their feet. Vascular disease causes the veins to constrict, and the body cannot remove the blood from the legs to avoid damaging the body. The body can have severe reactions to the blood vessels. In extreme cases, the veins may form a blood clot that can lead to death. The best way to avoid complications related to varicose veins is to get treatment to prevent them. Some of the most common diseases of the legs and feet are: Cervical stenosis : Causes the tubes that carry blood to the outside of the body (the blood vessels), to constrict. This condition can cause: Cervical stenosis (or varicose veins) can cause severe pain and discomfort in your legs and feet.
