If you suffer from painful, tired, achy legs, you may have venous insufficiency. Venous insufficiency happens when blood flow is restricted or deficient. Usually, the valves in the vein have been impaired or damaged. This prevents them from being able to send blood back to the heart. Since blood can not travel back to the heart, a pooling of blood in the legs occurs.

Venous Insufficiency Is Serious
If you have symptoms, you should see the Tulsa Vein Clinic immediately. As with many vein issues, the disease is progressive and worsens as you age.
Venous Insufficiency Treatment that Works
Get Back to Being You!
At the Vein Treatment Clinic in Tulsa, we offer a wide range of treatments and procedures for venous insufficiency. Depending on the specific needs and concerns of the individual, we may recommend a combination of treatments.
Your vein specialists can provide a personalized recommendation at your first consultation.
Your treatment for chronic venous insufficiency may include the following:
Your vein specialist will usually recommend lifestyle changes as the first method of treatment. These lifestyle changes may include leg elevation as prescribed throughout the day to help reduce pressure on the legs. Exercise such as walking as well as foot and ankle flexes to increase blood flow in your leg veins. And weight management because extra weight can put pressure on your veins and cause damage to your valves.
Compression therapy may help to ease swelling and leg discomfort. If compression socks or stockings do not help, your provider may prescribe intermittent pneumatic compression–inflatable sleeves you wear on your legs that help blood flow through your veins.
Medications to treat CVI may vary, including antibiotics, anticoagulants, and Unna boots (medicated wraps).
