As blood cycles throughout the body, your veins usually carry blood from your feet, up the leg, and back to your heart. Venous insufficiency occurs when blood in one or more leg veins does not flow in the proper direction and begins to flow back down the vein, collecting in pools.
This pooling can cause pain or a “heaviness” in the legs and lead to enlarged, bulging, and twisted veins. These veins, called Varicose Veins, are often visible through the skin.
Your body uses several mechanisms to propel blood through your veins. Leg muscles contract when you walk, pushing blood upward. Smooth muscles that line the veins also contract to keep blood flowing. Valves in your veins open, allowing blood to flow up toward your heart and close to prevent the blood from going backward. When one or more of these mechanisms doesn’t work properly, blood flows down the vein, collecting in pools.
