Cardiovascular Surgeon Op.Dr. Orçun Ünal gave important information on the subject. Varicose veins are the progressive expansion of the veins that carry blood back to the lungs and heart and become folded. Varicose veins may develop in superficial as well as deep places. The appearance of pain, cramps, itching and swelling and the psychological picture it creates makes people unhappy.
Heir is a new gift of the modern age to people who have to survive long hours of work. Varicose veins have become a more common disease in people who reach short distances, which replace walking as a result of intense and long working conditions and inactive daily life, by cars and transport vehicles. It is seen at a rate of 25% - 35% in the 30 - 35 age group, and 55 - 65 in the 50 - 60 age group. There is a wrong opinion among the people that the heir is seen only in women. Varicose veins also occur in men, but it is four times more common in women than men.
The most important factor in varicose veins and other venous diseases is genetics. A person who has heirs in their mother, father and other first-degree relatives should know that if he / she is standing for a long time or is constantly sitting, smokes, gains weight, is exposed to excessive heat, pregnancy and childbirth in women, varicose disease is inevitable. Varicose veins can be seen in people who stand or sit still for a long time.
Varicose veins patients pay attention to them!
"You should not stand still for a long time. If this cannot be done, simple exercises such as the back and forth movement of the foot from the ankle, rising on the tips of the feet should be applied. The legs should be extended as much as possible and even raised on stools, coffee tables, tables and chairs. Daily normal walks, cycling or swimming should be done regularly. Exercises that require intense muscular activity or weight lifting and wearing tight pants that tighten the joints should be avoided.
