What is conservative therapy?
Conservative therapy is a form of treatment for varicose veins or other venous disease that involves the use of compression stockings. Patients who undergo conservative therapy will be advised to wear compression stockings for a period of six weeks to three months, depending on the severity of the veins.
How do compression stockings treat varicose veins?
When we walk, our muscles surrounding the veins in our legs contract, then relax, helping the blood course through our body to our heart. Those with venous disease have altered blood flow: the valves that direct blood to other parts of the body are damaged, resulting in blood to build-up and expand the vein. If this happens, the muscles that surround these veins won’t be able to as effectively guide the blood to the heart. Compression stockings are created to be highest around the ankle and ease up towards the top, helping calf muscles to more effectively reroute blood to the heart.
What are some benefits of conservative therapy?
For those who are experiencing varicose veins or venous disease, conservative therapy can be very effective when supplemented with exercise, leg elevation, and weight loss. Conservative therapy can:
- Alleviate burning sensations
- Relieve itching
- Decrease swelling of the legs, feet, or ankles
- Soothe discomfort or pain
If you are concerned as to whether you may have varicose veins or venous disease, conservative therapy is a safe and effective treatment that can relieve signs of either of these vascular conditions.
