As you would already know by now, varicose veins are not only genetic but also a lifestyle disorder. People who stand for more than four hours every day, such as those employed as teachers, doctors, traffic police officers, and security guards are at a relatively higher risk of varicose veins.
Not only this, professionals working in Sedentary jobs where they have to sit for long hours at work are even more likely to develop varicose veins at a relatively younger age. For instance, people working at front office desk jobs, reception, and especially the IT professionals suffer from restricted blood flow due to limited physical activity and this is known to be the leading cause of varicose vein development.
Information Technology (IT) has been and is still a booming industry since the advent of computers. More and more people are eager to work as IT professionals due to better salary packages and an improved lifestyle.
In their pursuit of a prosperous life, IT professionals often tend to ignore their health which is anyway compromised due to their desk job and stressful work environment characterized by immense pressure to meet deadlines and regular competition to be better than the peers.
Working on the computer/laptop, preparing presentations, attending meetings, conducting seminars, and undertaking long flights for international conferences are some of the many instances where IT professionals have to spend hours sitting on the desk without any movement.
Apart from these scenarios of limited physical activity, IT professionals often encounter challenging tasks and have a lot of last-minute hassles before project deliveries and client meetings. The soaring competition at work, the pressure to always perform better, and job risk due to regular job cuts at major IT firms have made it even more stressful for the IT professionals.
What makes it even worse for them is the common but unsaid work culture of drinking coffee and tea at regular intervals. Most people working in the IT sector have confirmed that they consume a minimum of 4-5 cups of coffee every day as they feel that it helps them perform better at their job.
If you are also working as an IT professional or employed in a desk job, never ignore your health. A job that requires you to sit for an extended duration at a stretch increases your risk of numerous medical conditions such as obesity, heart disease, and off course varicose veins.
Varicose veins are formed when the valves of these damaged veins find it difficult to prevent the backward flow of blood. The blood does not move back to the heart and tends to remain pooled in the legs and feet. This causes extreme pain, discomfort, and itching in the affected area.
In extreme cases, patients may even find it difficult to stand or move. Varicose veins deteriorate the patient’s lifestyle and even slight delay in treatment can progress the medical condition to lead to other health conditions namely chronic venous insufficiency, active venous ulcers (open sores on the skin surface), and Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT – where a blood clot develops in the deep veins).
DVT can further lead to another life-threatening health condition known as pulmonary embolism where the blood clot breaks free from the legs and travels to the lungs. This leads to blockage in oxygen supply and eventually death.
For the treatment of varicose veins, you no longer need to undergo open surgeries as new and advanced minimally invasive treatment procedures are now feasible and also have a high success rate. The laser ablation technique is a painless procedure performed under the influence of local anaesthesia. This process uses a laser fibre to burn and close-off the damaged varicose veins.
