Varicose Veins and Athletes

You can still develop varicose veins even if you are healthy and exercise regularly. The reality is that even athletes can develop varicose veins. Certain sports can increase the likelihood of occurrence as they increase the stress on the veins in the legs. This could be weightlifting, skiing, backpacking, tennis, cycling, and running.

If you notice post exercise symptoms such as tired, heavy legs, pain, and/or swelling it’s important to take action. Wearing compression stockings can help promote circulation through the legs. There are simple in-office treatments for this condition. Both in-office procedures, EVLT and UGS, patients report little to no pain and have very little downtime from usual activities.
