Venous Disease - Athlete Leg Pain
If you’re a professional athlete or weekend warrior, you’ll know how important leg health is to your activity of choice. Leg pain and cramps can hinder your performance or in more extreme cases, completely stop you in your tracks. What you may not realize is that leg pain can often be caused by venous disease

“After going to another vein center and having no success, I was referred to Intermountain Vein Center for help. Because of their incredible knowledge, non-invasive and most current types of treatment, and dedication to my overall health, I am back to running better than ever, and I can even wear shorts without being embarrassed. I finally have my life back and am almost completely pain free!”Schedule a free screening
Dr. Hatch - Our Weekend Warrior
“I have been active all my life. My wife is a competitive runner and I am a casual runner. When I got into my mid 30’s I began experiencing cramping in my calves after running just a short distance. I tried everything to fix this problem but without relief. Goo, tablets, hydration, stretching etc. but nothing helped. Being one of the doctors who treat vein disease at the Intermountain Vein Center, and after treating a few patients who are runners and who were experiencing the same cramping problem as myself, it hit me. I have venous insufficiency or vein disease too! I started wearing compression stockings and my cramping problem went away immediately. I then had a full work up and found the incompetent veins in both calves and had them treated. I can now run freely without the annoying cramping problem. I also never run or bike without my compression socks. I enjoy running again thanks to compression therapy and vein treatment.”

These stockings ,often colorful, are designed to improve performance, endurance and speed recovery. They can also help alleviate the symptoms of venous disease.
