Did You Know That Restless Leg Syndrome Is Usually Caused By Vein Problems?

We help you Rejuvinate and Reveal Beauty with Your Legs!

Restless Leg Syndrome, or RLS, is a very common ailment in the United States, with around 5 million adults suffering from a moderate to severe form of the disorder.

Restless Leg Syndrome Affects 10% of the U.S. Population.

RLS (restless leg syndrome) is caused by unpleasant sensations in the legs that typically appear when lying down and relaxing or sleeping. People with restless legs experience an uncontrollable urge to move their legs to relieve these sensations. The sensations can also affect the chest, arms, and face.
RLS occurs in men and women, though the incidence is twice as high in women. RLS suffered are often unable to sleep, which negatively impacts many other aspects of life.
Recent studies have shown that a significant percentage of people affected by RLS also have a form of venous insufficiency such as varicose veins.
Those same studies showed that treating the vein issues also improves or resolves the symptoms of RLS.

If you are hesitant about checking into doing something about your varicose veins like I have been, no need to look anywhere else. From beginning to end I could never have imagined how much finally getting it done would make such a difference. Would recommend them to everyone!! Thank you

Recent studies suggest people affected by RLS also have a form of venous insufficiency such as varicose veins.

In 2008, Dr. Clint Hayes published an article titled “The Effect of Endovenous Laser Ablation on Restless Legs Syndrome” in the medical journal Phlebology. In this study, he showed that in patients with both RLS and venous insufficiency, 98% of patients experienced relief from RLS symptoms by treating their venous insufficiency, and 80% had long-term relief.
This is why we recommend all patients with RLS have an evaluation for venous insufficiency. The results of Dr. Hayes’ work and others strongly suggest that before initiating or continuing drug therapy, anyone suffering from RLS should be screened for venous insufficiency through the use of ultrasound imaging. We can perform the ultrasound at any of our Tennesse and Georgia Offices. It’s painless, takes just a few minutes, and is usually covered by insurance.
If venous insufficiency is found, we would encourage you to review the benefits of vein treatment options with the goal of curing the RSL.
Dr. Gardner has been successfully performing the Endovenous Laser treatment to resolve the underlying vein issues and resolving RLS symptoms. Patients have been very pleased. Call and find out more.
