It is that time of year when we give thanks and celebrate that very special woman in our lives, Mom! The daily life of a mother can be hard on her legs. To honor and support moms, we are excited to host our 4th annual Mother’s Day Screening Event! If you or your loved one experience leg aches/pain, heaviness , and swelling you’ll want to be here!

Mothers are especially prone to varicose veins as pregnancy itself is a major risk factor. During pregnancy there is increased blood volume which increases the pressure in veins and increased levels of the hormone progestin causes veins to dilate. Adding heredity and other risk factors, studies indicate up to 40% of women will develop venous insufficiency. Bad veins do not stop in the legs. It is estimated that up to 30% of women who suffer from chronic pelvic pain may actually have a condition called Pelvic Venous Insufficiency. This condition is caused by faulty veins in the pelvis causing pelvic pain and heaviness. If you experience any symptoms of varicose veins, join us on May 3rd for a free varicose vein screening. During this screening an ultrasound will be performed and an opportunity to meet with a physician who will explain the findings, answer your questions and let you know if you can benefit from vein treatment.  We will have delicious food from Marvelous Catering and a special gift to send home with you!

Space is limited so sign up today http://www.ivein.com/mothers-day-free-screenings/ or by calling 801.379.6700.
