What is Leg Pain? 

Leg pain is often one of the first symptoms people notice with vein disorders, even if they don’t know yet that a vein disorder is the culprit. The pain can range from a general achiness to sharp, burning pain in the area at or surrounding the affected vein(s). The discomfort may increase after long periods of sitting or standing and may also worsen toward the end of the day. Leg pain is often accompanied by swelling of the lower leg, ankle and foot. Other types of leg pain include leg cramping or the feeling of restless legs, particularly at night when you try to rest. 

How Much does Leg Pain Treatment Cost? 

The cost of your leg pain treatment varies depending on your health insurance plan, the type of treatment required, and the extent of treatment needed to help you achieve your desired results. In order to provide a more accurate and personalized cost estimate, we can gladly schedule a consultation with our team to address your questions, concerns, goals and recommended next steps. 

What is Causing my Leg Pain? 

While leg pain is frequently caused by spider veins and varicose veins, leg pain may be the result of a variety of other underlying conditions.

Restless leg syndrome (RLS) is often associated with varicose veins. RLS is characterized by an irresistible urge to move the legs and most often occurs at night. Both leg cramps and RLS can interfere with a good night’s rest, exacerbating symptoms and your overall vein condition. You may find that symptoms improve when you elevate your legs for a period of time. This is an indication that your discomfort is directly related to your vein disorder. In this case—and many other cases—visiting a vein treatment center can often help in identifying the root cause of the pain and exploring treatment options to eliminate your discomfort. 

How Can I Treat my Leg Pain? 

Fortunately, there are a variety of effective, minimally invasive treatments available to help you relieve leg pain and simultaneously eliminate visible signs of vein conditions, like spider veins and varicose veins, for good. Most patients find that uncomfortable symptoms disappear almost instantly following treatment. 

If you’re unsure which treatment is right for your leg pain, we encourage you to come in for an expert assessment of your condition. During your consultation, our providers will assess your condition, listen to your concerns and develop a fully personalized treatment plan to help you achieve your wellness goals.
