If you have Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS), then you’ve probably done your fair share of searching for relief from those annoying symptoms. From feeling like your legs can’t stop moving, especially at night? Other common symptoms include pins and needles, burning, itching or just an uncomfortable feeling. Are you’re ready to put a stop to RLS symptoms – but you can’t seem to find anything that could help?
Varicose Vein Treatment for RLS
The most common cause of Restless Leg Syndrome is from swelling associated with veins that are not functioning correctly. One of the best treatments for Restless Leg Syndrome is the same one we use for varicose veins: the Endovenous Laser (EVLA). This laser is specifically designed to close damaged veins. By targeting the diseased veins, the EVLA can close them and redirect blood to healthy veins, resulting in significant minimization of RLS symptoms. Once those damaged veins are safely and effectively closed most patient experience at least a 70% reduction in their restless leg symptoms.
What Happens After RLS Treatment?
The EVLA procedure is a simple out-patient office procedure. Patients are back to most of their normal activities within 24 hours. Relief in many patients can be seen as soon as a week after treatment.
