A healthy heart is vital for long-term health. Keep these risk factors in mind when considering the best time to see a cardiologist at Carolina Heart and Leg Center, P.A.
The American Heart Association recommends that adults get 70 minutes of vigorous activity or 2.5 hours of moderate exercise every week. Keeping physically fit reduces the risks of many serious diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. It also improves cholesterol, blood pressure, bone strength, energy, stamina, and weight. Getting in shape is as easy as walking.
Endovenous Laser Therapy (EVLT) is one of the best treatments for varicose veins, enlarged and/or damaged veins, offered at Carolina Heart and Leg, PA. Laser energy, which is a concentrated beam of light, is administered to the targeted tissue.
Damaged leg veins that do not allow blood to flow back to the heart is called Chronic Venous Insufficiency. When the valves in the veins do not work properly, blood flows backward and collects in the legs; causing pain, swelling, and cramps.
Blood clots are a natural phenomenon in a healthy body called coagulation. Platelets and plasma in the blood stream interact to form a clot over an injury to a blood vessel, stopping bleeding. Once the damage to the vessel is healed, the body will safely dissolve the blood clot.
