Over 30 million Americans suffer from venous disease, one of the most serious forms being chronic venous insufficiency (CVI). CVI occurs when valve damage in the leg veins effects blood flow to the heart from the legs, causing blood to "pool" in these veins. Valve damage may occur as a result of aging, extended sitting or standing, pregnancy and obesity. Symptoms include varicose veins, night cramps, leg/ankle swelling, tight calves, and legs that feel heavy, tired, restless, or achy1.
