If you suffer from varicose veins you know how painful they can be, especially after a long day or travel. At The Vein Institute Brisbane, we help our patients understand the extent of their varicose veins and provide a comprehensive treatment program to remove them.
Many patients ask us what causes varicose veins and as advanced as science is, the exact cause remains unknown. What we do know about the causes of varicose veins is;
- Varicose veins are often hereditary
- Taking the oral contraceptive pill can be a factor
- Working in jobs that require you to be on your feet can also be linked to varicose veins
- Multiple pregnancies may also cause varicose veins
