South Bay Vascular Center and Vein Institute Launches Social Media Campaign to Promote Foot Health Awareness, and Gives Tips to Keep Feet Healthy

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) June 08, 2013

South Bay Vascular Center and Vein Institute in San Jose, CA has launched a new campaign via social media focusing on foot health education. The campaign provides the public with simple tips and ideas to care for feet, in order to promote improved health and a better quality of life.

Dr. Polly Kokinos, Dr. Jafar Tay, Dr. John Frusha, and Dr. Kim Rappaport, the four leading vein doctors at South Bay Vascular Center, encourage walking as a way to promote foot health. “Walking for thirty minutes five times a week can help encourage blood flow,” explains Dr. Kokinos. “This lowers the risk of varicose veins, swelling in the feet, and deep vein thrombosis.”

South Bay Vascular Center and Vein Institute specializes in treating various forms of vein disease, a problem that can affect foot health. Walking is one of several topics the center is discussing this month. They are providing foot health tips through Twitter and Facebook.

Though they are often overlooked, good health in the feet can have a positive impact on the rest of the body.

Varicose Vein Treatment Options

Varicose veins and spider veins are extremely common in men and women. While spider veins are very small, reddish veins on the surface of the skin, varicose veins are much larger, bulging, tangled veins that may appear bluish in color. Men and women suffer from varicose veins, although women are much more likely to have them.

Today, patients have access to a number of effective varicose vein treatment options. Advancements in technology and medicine have led to the development of effective, minimally invasive treatments that produce optimal results with few side-effects or downtime. These treatments include sclerotherapy, radio frequency ablation, phlebectomy, and endovenous laser ablation.
