Treating Swollen Legs

Many patients with advanced venous reflux disease will also present with leg swelling. Treating the venous reflux disease will help alleviate the leg swelling. But it is important to discern between venous reflux swelling and lymphedema swelling. Many patients with advanced venous reflux disease can present with lymphedema as well. But treating the venous reflux will not alleviate lymphedema swelling.

This is the reason why some patients presenting with swelling who have their veins treated, do not see a significant improvement in their leg swelling. Lymphedema must be treated with leg elevation, exercise, and compression therapy. Compression therapy involves medical support hose or wraps as well as compression pumps.
