Veins bring oxygen-depleted blood from the organs and tissues to the heart and lungs, often against the force of gravity. Blood flow through the veins tends to be passive and is enabled by muscle contraction in the arms and legs. Diseases of the veins fall into two broad categories: blockage of the veins (thrombosis) and inadequate venous flow (insufficiency). There are various signs and symptoms that our Monmouth County vein specialists can use to determine whether there is a problem with this flow of blood through the veins, particularly the type caused by venous insufficiency.
Typical symptoms associated with vein disease as a result of insufficiency include some or all of the below:
