Get Back the Lifestyle You Deserve with the Ozark Regional Vein Center
“This is life changing,” said Taylor Daniele, 67, who sought treatment for his varicose veins at Ozark Regional Vein Center. “I’m still an old man, but I’m a different old man now,” he continued as he started to choke up, water welling up in his eyes. “And it’s one of the best things I ever did,” he said.
Before treatment, Taylor suffered from itching, burning, and sharp pains in his legs, and a lot of general fatigue, which became progressively worse the more he walked. Over time, he found himself taking alternate routes to avoid going up hills until he finally sought help for what he correctly thought to be the culprit: vein disease.
“I went home to walk my dog right after my first treatment, and immediately, I could feel a difference. It happened so fast, I figured I might be experiencing a placebo effect, but I tried going up a hill, and I didn’t huff or puff, and my legs didn’t feel like 10,000 pounds,” said Taylor. Shortly afterwards, he ventured to the gym where his increased his rep routine by more than 30 percent.
“I feel like I could do even more, but why? I mean, at this point in life, I’m doing pretty darn good!” he smiled.
Vein disease affects over 30 million Americans but only 1.9 million ever receive the right diagnosis and treatment every year, reports the Society for Vascular Surgery. The chronic condition develops when the valves in leg veins stop working, which allows blood to flow backward and pool in the lower leg veins. Often people think their spider or varicose veins are simply cosmetic, but as more blood stagnates over time this causes leg symptoms including heaviness, swelling, burning, aching, pain fatigue, itching, cramping, restless legs, dark spots on the skin, and eventually open wounds.
I cannot say enough positive things about my experience at Ozark Vein Clinic.
“Treatment changes people’s lives dramatically,” said Dr. Kevin Haney, Medical Director of the Ozark Regional Vein Center, a cutting edge facility that offers state-of-the-art, minimally invasive treatment of varicose and spider veins in Rogers, Arkansas. “The big problem is so many patients chalk up their symptoms to things like advancing age, lack of fitness, and weight gain, without realizing they actually have vein disease,” he said.
People should ask themselves questions like: “Do I need to sit down during my work day because of my legs swelling or aching?” “Do I miss out on activities I love to do because my legs feel painful or heavy?” “Do I have burning or restless legs that affect my sleep or my daily routine?” They also should consider their risk factors such as being over 40 years old, multiple pregnancies, female gender, family genetic history, heavy lifting, smoking, prolonged standing, and obesity or excess weight.
“When I walked, my legs felt like they weighed 100 pounds, and when I slept, they throbbed so badly they’d wake me up in the middle of the night,” said Nancy, who finally decided to seek treatment for her varicose veins at the Ozark Vein Center. “I felt nervous the first time I came in for care, but Dr. Haney is wonderful, and he and his whole staff just put me at ease, immediately really,” she said.
