Varicose veins are blood vessels that have become abnormally dilated, swollen, twisted, and bulging. The venous system consists of tubular thin walled veins that function to return the deoxygenated blood to the heart. When the veins become genetically weakened and the directional valves in the veins do not close properly… the exposure of gravity or standing will allow for backward flow towards the feet, and increased pressure in the veins. The combination of increased intravenous pressure and backflow of the blood can result in the once normal veins stretching and becoming varicose. They mainly affect the feet and legs, and are commonly accompanied by symptoms including: heaviness, throbbing, pain, aching, fatiguing, and restless legs. Varicose veins can also lead to swelling, skin rashes and ulceration, as well as an increased incidence of blood clots.

Varicose veins are extremely prevalent, affecting more that 25% of adult women. They most commonly affect women in the age group of 25 to 70 years old, and are responsible for more missed work and debilitation than arterial vascular disease. Varicose veins are caused when the blood vessels inside the body become weak and malfunction, allowing blood to backflow and pool. This may be a result of weakened walls or dysfunctional valves, but the final result is pain and swelling in the leg accompanied by bulging veins. Some factors that may contribute to poor blood circulation and the development of varicose veins are:
