You are probably already aware that smoking and eating fatty foods is bad for your veins and arteries, and that exercise improves your circulation and reduces your chances of developing a vascular condition down the road. However, if you already have vein disease, it is not too late to turn your health around. Whether your veins are healthy or not, Dr. Tif Siragusa and his team of Nashville vein specialists share with you the top resources to help you maintain healthy circulatory function and to help you improve your overall health and wellbeing.
What resources are available to Nashville, TN residents for achieving peak vascular health?
A local vein center. Vein clinics in Nashville (and in other cities) are an excellent resource for vascular health for several reasons. Vein centers are generally a one-stop place to gain valuable information about maintaining and improving vascular health, to get a comprehensive arterial and venous evaluation and screening, to meet one-on-one with a vascular surgeon like our own Dr. Tif Siragusa, and to receive a care plan tailored to suit you and your particular needs and goals. Whether you worry about the look of spider veins or need to get rid of problem veins through vein removal, Nashville and Hermitage residents of all kinds are welcome at Siragusa Vein and Laser Center.
An iPhone. Yes, you did read that correctly. Your iPhone can be one of the most valuable resources for your vein health in more ways than one. First, the Siragusa Vein & Laser Center App brings a wealth of information about vein disease relevant both before and after treatment right to your fingertips. From the app, you can quickly and easily learn about vein disease, answers to frequently asked questions and how to take care of yourself after treatment. The app is available for a free download on our website and at the iTunes Store. With the help of music players and exercise apps, your iPhone is also a useful tool to get you moving, get your blood pumping more through your legs and keep you motivated.
The Internet. There are thousands of online resources available that provide all you ever wanted to know about veins (and more). One caveat about information found on the Internet is that anyone at all can write anything they want and post it online for you to read. For this reason, you do have to be careful to be certain the information you are consuming has been written by a reputable and authoritative source, such as your vein doctor’s own blog and the following websites:
