What is Conservative Treatment?
When it comes to slowing the advancement of vascular diseases, sometimes less can be more. At Miami Vein Center, we often begin treating vein disorders conservatively before jumping into a more intensive procedure such as vascular surgery.
Serving the greater Miami area, Miami Vein Center is led by board certified vascular surgeon Dr. Jose Almeida. Contact us today to schedule a consultation and find out how conservative treatment can benefit your chronic vascular conditions and vascular surgery if necessary.
At Miami Vein Center, we refer to conservative treatment as non-invasive ways to alleviate the symptoms of vein disease without medications or surgery. These can include:
- Compression stockings – These are elastic garments worn on the legs that compress the limbs and improve circulation. Compression stockings can prevent the onset of or slow the progression of vascular diseases.
- Diet changes – What we eat directly affects our overall health. Having a deficiency of dietary fiber can correlate with venous problems over time. Increasing fiber intake and maintaining a healthy diet that is balanced with a variety of whole foods can help maintain vascular function.
- Increased exercise – Walking more and incorporating more exercise into your daily routine can also help improve blood circulation throughout your body.
Is Conservative Treatment Right for Me?
These conservative therapies may be suggested in any combination, and Dr. Almeida’s advice may vary depending on the individual. During your consultation, factors such as your overall health, medical history, and vein condition will be evaluated to determine how conservative therapies can best benefit you.
While conservative treatment cannot completely prevent vascular conditions, it can slow the advancement of vein diseases and is also a possible solution for patients who do not want to or do not quality for other invasive procedures. After having varicose veins removed, improving circulation, diet, and muscle tone is one of the best preventive methods for developing new ones.
Results may vary from patient to patient, and regular appointments may be advised to monitor your condition.
