Novant Health Vein Specialists Create Foot Health Awareness and Offer Tips for Healthy Feet

Winston-Salem, North Carolina (PRWEB) July 22, 2013

Novant Health Vein Specialists in Winston-Salem, NC has launched a new public health campaign via social media to promote the importance of maintaining healthy feet and legs. About 25 million Americans suffer from venous disorders, which can be particularly problematic when the feet and legs are affected, the vein center says. The center aims to help patients prevent and manage vascular conditions in the lower extremities by providing useful, simple tips and health information.

“Lifestyle changes can help prevent the appearance or spread of vein problems,” says Dr. Raymond Workman, Medical Director at Novant Health Vein Specialists. To keep feet in top condition, Dr. Workman recommends frequent exercise, which helps keep the circulatory system strong. Maintaining a healthy weight and eating foods rich in dietary fiber are also recommended. These strategies help to reduce stress on the body and keep feet and veins healthy.

In addition to a video on modern varicose vein treatments, Dr. Workman and his team are using Facebook and Twitter to educate North Carolinians on how to keep feet healthy. Novant Health Vein Specialists encourages anyone at risk of vascular problems, or who is already experiencing symptoms in the feet or legs, to visit their website and social media pages to learn more.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options

Varicose veins and spider veins are extremely common in men and women. While spider veins are very small, reddish veins on the surface of the skin, varicose veins are much larger, bulging, tangled veins that may appear bluish in color. Men and women suffer from varicose veins, although women are much more likely to have them. Today, patients have access to a number of effective varicose vein treatment options.

Advancements in technology and medicine have led to the development of effective, minimally invasive treatments that produce optimal results with few side-effects or downtime. These treatments include sclerotherapy, radio frequency ablation, phlebectomy, and endovenous laser ablation.
