Unfortunately, Venous Disease is something that can attack anyone, at any time.  It is not a disease that cares about race, age, or gender – although it is more prominent with pregnant women or women who have carried to full-term – and there are many risk factors associated with it that can include your personal history, your family history, and your lifestyle choices.

Every year, millions of people suffer from Venous Disease, which is also commonly referred to as Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI), Varicose Veins, impaired musculovenous pump, and venous disease.  CVI is a medical condition that causes your veins to become weakened, and leads to them being unable to pump the blood from the lower extremities back up to your heart.  Read more about Chronic Venous Insufficiency.
