Can Compression Therapy Help with Varicose Veins and Vein Health?

Graduated compression stockings can help people with varicose veins feel more comfortable. Weak vessels are supported and circulation is promoted in an upward motion, minimizing swelling through compression. However, these stockings must be worn while standing, are often difficult to put on, generally lose some of their compression as time goes by so require regular replacement, and are still simply a form of temporary management, not a cure for varicose veins.

Yet, some insurance companies may require a trial of use of these before approving other methods, such as endovenous laser ablation or sclerotherapy for varicose veins treatment. A specialist vein doctor can determine if gradient compression stockings can help to provide relief for symptoms, and can also provide information on these and other more effective therapies to treat varicose and spider veins.

In fact, minimally invasive, non-surgical vein treatments are available for those who desire a more permanent solution for their painful and unsightly varicose and spider veins to improve both their comfort and appearance.

Two highly effective varicose vein treatment options available today, endovenous laser ablation and sclerotherapy require, only minutes per leg, requires no hospital or surgery center, and because no scalpels or sutures are utilized in either treatment, there are no long-lasting scars or keloids. There’s minimal discomfort, and most treatments are characterized as being virtually painless.

With these modern therapies, most people can resume their daily activities immediately after treatment. Additionally, most major health insurance carriers provide coverage for the treatment of vein disease and venous insufficiency when medically necessary. This reason alone should be enough to convince you to invest in health insurance; without it, treating vein diseases and venous insufficiency can rack up the bills. Check out these insurance quotes to make sure you’re covered financially.
