Conservative vein therapy refers to the non-invasive forms of treatment. These conservative measures may include medications such as anti-inflammatory medications to help with pain management and also graduated compression stockings.
We may ask patients with varicose veins to increase their daily walking & exercise, achieve weight loss and avoid high heels. Historically, both health care providers and insurers have recommended a trial period of conservative vein therapy before proceeding with definitive vein care. Conservative vein therapy is beneficial in reducing varicose vein symptoms and slowing the progression of chronic venous disease. However, conservative vein therapy will neither prevent nor eliminate the condition of varicose veins.
