Have You Met Your Deductible?

Have You Met Your Deductible?

10 months ago

Many patients wonder “When is the best time for treatment?” There isn’t really a right or wrong answer – when to begin treatment depends on an individual’s circumstances and preferences. For example, many people prefer not to start treatment in the summer because the first step is completing a three-month trial of a non-invasive intervention like compression stockings. This is completely understandable: compression stockings are usually nicer to wear in the cooler months because they provide an additional layer of warmth and can be hidden under pants. However, temporary discomfort should be weighed against the level of ongoing suffering caused by painful and swollen legs. Beginning treatment sooner can greatly improve one’s quality of life.

Plan to Have Healthier Veins in 2018 After the hustle and bustle of the holidays, we have a chance to think about doing things differently in the new year.

Support Vein Health with Nutrition and Exercise   Ah, January, when the cold and snow settle in for a long winter’s night and our motivation to even move can be hard to find. How ironic, then, that so many people choose this month to atone for holiday indulgence and vow to really get in shape! According to StatisticBrain.com, 67% of people with health club memberships never use them, yet the industry brings in nearly $22 billion/year. Despite their January resolutions, many people fall off the gym wagon by March.   We encourage everyone to get out and play and to take charge of their eating habits. But if you suffer from painful legs, ankle swelling, or varicose veins—and especially if you have been diagnosed with venous disease—don’t forget to get your veins in shape, too! You can start easily by choosing better nutrition and establishing a regular routine of even
