Understanding Varicose Veins

Varicose veins develop for a number of reasons when valves in the veins do not function correctly. As a result, blood flows backwards (reflux) down the veins of the leg. The veins then fill with blood, become dilated, and turn blue or purple. These large veins cause a number of bothersome symptoms and also adversely affect the health of the legs.
