Conservative Treatment

Conservative Treatment

Before the vein specialists at Palm Vein Center recommend a minimally invasive procedure or vein surgery to patients, they often suggest conservative treatment to mitigate the venous disease. That is, if the patient’s condition does not require a surgical intervention indefinitely. The team at Palm Vein Center may recommend both forms of treatment (conservative therapy and vein surgery) if they feel the patient will benefit from them.

Conservative treatment is usually reserved for those with mild cases of vein disease, including but not limited to, spider veins or relatively small varicose veins. Examples of conservative therapies generally include:

Exercising
Diet modifications
Lifestyle changes
Elevating legs
Losing weight
Therapeutic massage
Compression stockings
Avoiding prolonged standing or sitting 
Avoiding frequent or excessive crossing of the legs

Although favorable, the team at Palm Vein Center wants patients to understand home remedies and conservative treatment techniques will not provide the same results as minimally invasive treatment when it comes to eliminating or reducing venous disease. 

Medi Assure

Palm Vein Center is a proud retailer of Medi Assure, a state-of-the-art compression stocking that is used to conservatively treat conditions, including:

Spider veins
Varicose veins
Edema

Assure stockings can also help prevent deep-vein thrombosis (DVT) and may even help alleviate symptoms of itching and heaviness in the legs.

Palm Vein Center distributes Assure for a number of reasons, but one of the most notable is our belief that this brand is truly one of a kind. Compared to traditional stockings, Assure compression stockings are more comfortable and blend into the skin to disguise vein conditions as they heal. They come in a variety of styles, including open-toe, closed-toe, wide calf, maternity, and so much more.

Our office has a wide selection of styles, sizes, and colors. If the patient does not see the product they want, we can have them delivered to our clinic.

We want patients to not only have options, but options that work best for them and their bodies. In order to get the most out of the patients’ Assure stockings, we offer custom measurements in-office for the most accurate fit for maximum comfort.
