In articles and social media posts, the vein center provides simple tips to help the public better the health of their entire bodies through proper foot care.
Many people suffer from swollen feet. “One of the causes of swollen feet is venous insufficiency, a breakdown in the body’s ability to transport blood from the legs up to the heart,” says Dr. Robert Handley, a leading vein specialist at Flower Mound Vein Center. “Keep the feet elevated while sitting for short-term relief.”
Dr. Handley recommends beginning a walking routine as a long term-solution to swollen feet. Exercising regularly helps promote blood flow, which makes fluid less likely to pool in the feet.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options
Approximately 40% of women, and 25% of men, suffer from varicose veins. Varicose veins appear as twisting, rope-like cords of bulging veins under the skin, most often appearing on the legs. Some of the most common symptoms of varicose veins include leg heaviness, aching, swelling, fatigue, itching, tingling, or tenderness.
Fortunately, patients with varicose veins have access to several safe and effective treatments. In many cases, varicose vein treatment is performed right in the office with minimally invasive therapies. Some of the best vein treatments available today are endovenous laser ablation, ambulatory phlebectomy, and sclerotherapy, including ultrasound-guided foam sclerotherapy. Patients with minor cases of varicose or spider veins may see results using conservative treatment, such as compression stockings or making healthy lifestyle changes like being more physically active.
