Thanks to greater awareness and research, new treatment options are constantly being developed. This includes support for inpiduals with active lifestyles. One of the best vein treatment options available is compression garments designed specifically for sports.

Our patients include marathon runners, triathletes, basketball players, martial arts champions and recreational tennis players who hate having to be away from their sport. Schedule an appointment to find out if wearing compression during your physical activities can not only help fight vein disease, but also improve performance.
