The Art of Aging with Chronic Venous Insufficiency

The Art of Aging Expo, sponsored by The Times, was the perfect venue to educate our seniors.The event focus was: How to get the most out of your senior years. Good health was a hot topic. We shared valuable information on chronic venous insufficiency and vein care treatment.

Chronic Venous Insufficiency (CVI) develops when the valves in your leg veins stop working properly, allowing blood to flow backward and pool in the lower leg veins. CVI is much more common than many people think, impacting 15-25% of all adults.

The truth is chronic venous insufficiency can affect anyone. However, age is certainly a factor. The risk for vein disease increases after age 50. Other factors that may increase your risk include: family history, obesity, sedentary lifestyle, and smoking.

We met a lot of people! Many thrilled to learn they didn’t have to continue to live in pain from vascular disease. Minimally invasive treatment is available with little-to-no down time.  More importantly, everyone walked away with a better understanding of their own health and bodies. And that is how to Age Artfully!
