Varicose veins can form as the vein walls lose their elasticity causing weakening of the valves within the vessels. These dysfunctional valves cannot keep venous blood flowing in the right direction causing gravity “pulls” the blood down your leg and ankle. This pooling effect can then lead to a myriad of symptoms. This “venous insufficiency” can be caused or made worse by age, gender, work history, pregnancy, or family history. Unfortunately, this troublesome issue is very common as we age, with about half of all Americans over the age of 50 affected.
