Superficial Venous Reflux is a condition that develops when the valves in the legs that usually help blood flow upward towards the heart become damaged or diseased.

The faulty valves allow blood to literally flow backwards when your legs are below your body. When a person with poorly functioning valves stands up, the blood flow actually reverses and flows down the superficial veins, rather than upward toward the heart. As the blood pools in the legs the pressure builds up against the walls of the vein causing the vein to become distended and engorged. There multiple reasons the valves malfunction but the result is the same. Read more about the symptoms of venous reflux here.

If you think you may be experiencing venous reflux or any of these symptoms please schedule an appointment with Vein Specialists of the Carolinas to have your veins evaluated. Our vein specialists can diagnose and treat your vein condition and help relieve the pain and discomfort you are experiencing.
