The veins in your legs carry blood back to your heart. They have one-way valves that keep blood from flowing backward. If you have chronic venous insufficiency, the valves don’t work the way they should, and some of the blood may go back down into your legs and cause vein diseases. Therefore, if you live in Scott County, KY, and seeking venous insufficiency treatments, then contact Lexington Vein Institute for a consultation.
