How Common Are Abnormal Leg Veins?
(http://ow.ly/J8y430miaEx)

If your legs are dotted in spider or varicose veins, you may be feeling self-conscious or alone. However, abnormal leg veins are incredibly common; between 50% and 55% of women have varicose, or spider veins and 40% to 45% of men also experience them. Although unsightly leg veins can appear at any age, they're more likely to develop after the age of 50.

Being Short Has Its Benefits
(http://ow.ly/66Lg30miaEw)

A study published in Circulation: Cardiovascular Genetics has found a link between height and circulatory health. Data suggest that individuals who are shorter are also less likely to suffer from vein-related blood clots, including a serious condition called deep vein thrombosis. Although we have no control over how tall we are, individuals who are taller can provide additional support to their veins by wearing compression stockings.

What Is Restless Leg Syndrome?
(http://ow.ly/JhWU30miaEv)

Restless leg syndrome is a disorder of the nervous system that causes an urge or desire to move the legs frequently. This urge to move your legs is more common at night and generally occurs when you're trying to rest. For some patients, RLS presents a sensation of tingling or itching, for others, it's more of a pins-and-needles or burning sensation. Whatever the case, if these types of symptoms are preventing you from getting a good night's rest, contact us: (http://ow.ly/JhWU30miaEv)

(http://ow.ly/qnkd30miaEu)

Muscle cramps in the legs can arise for a variety of reasons. Sometimes they're the result of not stretching before exercise or working out in warm temperatures, other times, dehydration or poor circulation plays a role. Certain types of prescription medication may also be to blame. While most cramps subside within a few minutes, if yours are frequent or persistent, it's time to seek a professional opinion.

Is Treatment Always Required for Varicose Veins?
(http://ow.ly/IJLJ30miaEt)

Not necessarily. If you aren't bothered by the appearance of your varicose veins, and they aren't causing you any discomfort, treatment isn't always necessary. However, if you're experiencing pain and discomfort or are suffering from conditions like leg ulcers, skin discoloration, and swelling treatment can provide significant relief.

What Happens During Radiofrequency Ablation Treatment?
http://ow.ly/lX9530miaEs)

During radiofrequency ablation treatment, you'll lie down on a bed, and Dr. Juleff will apply a local anesthetic to your legs. Once the anesthesia has set in, Dr. Juleff makes a small incision in the leg and uses ultrasound imaging to guide a catheter through your leg until it reaches the varicose vein being treated. Next, radiofrequency energy is sent through the catheter and applied to the varicose vein. The catheter is then pulled through the heated vein, causing it to seal and close off. Dr. Juleff then stitches up the incision, bandages your leg, and applies a compression stocking. Generally, the process takes about an hour. If you're tired of living with unsightly varicose veins, this method of treatment may be right for you. Contact us: (http://ow.ly/lX9530miaEs)

When Should I See a Doctor Regarding Leg Swelling?
(http://ow.ly/ONy730miaEr)

In some cases, leg swelling can point to a serious health problem like a blood clot or heart condition. If you're experiencing chest pain, have difficulty breathing, or feel faint, seek professional medical help immediately. Other worrisome signs include swelling in only one leg or swelling that occurs out of the blue, with little or no warning.
