Deep Vein Thrombosis
or Blood Clots

Did you know people with varicose veins are five times more likely to develop deep vein thrombosis or blood clots in the legs? DVTs are  serious because clots can easily break off and travel to other organs and cause strokes and pulmonary embolisms.

We screen every Medical Vein Clinic patient for DVTs using sophisticated ultrasound technology, and unfortunately, with COVID-19, we see DVTs much more frequently at the clinic. Most common causes are leg injuries, sitting or laying for long periods of time and dehydration. Signs of DVTs are pain and swelling---particularly in one leg and not the other--and what feels like a hard rope inside your leg. If you have those symptoms and experience dizziness or shortness of breath, get to your doctor or ER immediately.

Why Moving Matters if You Have DVT

If you're dealing with #DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis), exercise is your secret weapon! It's like a superhero for your circulation, making sure your blood flows smoothly and easing that thing called venous insufficiency.

What's venous insufficiency? It's when your blood doesn't travel back to your heart as it should. But fear not! Activities like walking, hiking, swimming, dancing, and jogging (basically, anything fun!) can also help your lungs bounce back after a pulmonary embolism. 

Studies prove that getting your body moving can improve those annoying DVT symptoms like swelling, discomfort, and redness. Plus, you'll feel more energized and ready to take on the day!
