Vein mapping is an ultrasound to evaluate the venous systems for evidence of valvular incompetence.
The most common treatment for venous insufficiency is prescription compression stockings. These special elastic stockings apply pressure at the ankle and lower leg. They help improve blood flow and can reduce leg swelling.
Some tips to improve your blood flow include:
- Keep your legs elevated whenever possible.
- Wear compression stockings to apply pressure to your lower legs.
- Keep your legs uncrossed when seated.
- Exercise regularly.
