Our Board-Certified Cardiologist, Dr. Vijay S. Ramanath, will offer you a personalized conservative treatment program tailored to your specific needs that will improve your vascular conditions. Some of our non-invasive ways of alleviating the symptoms of vein issues without any form of medications or surgery include:
Compression stockings are elastic garments that are worn on the legs throughout the day. The stockings compress the limbs and enhance the circulation of blood. Compression stockings help treat varicose veins.
Patients suffering from vein issues are encouraged to exercise regularly (30 minutes daily). Daily aerobic exercise will help improve the circulation of blood throughout the legs and other parts of the body.
The food we eat also affects our general health directly. You can improve vascular functioning by increasing fiber and protein intake. Also, take more of a balanced diet that contains a variety of whole foods and reduce your salt intake.
In addition, prolonged sitting or standing is also known to cause vein issues. Whether you are at work or home, switch position from time to time. This will improve blood flow.
Raise Your Legs

Obesity is also known to cause varicose veins. Shedding excess weight will help improve your condition.
