This makes the condition of the veins pathetic causing them to become bloated with pain. On a normal account the blood is usually propelled forward towards the heart by the leaflet valves in the veins. It is only in case of varicose vein disease that these valves fail to function properly causing the back flow of the blood and causing them to accumulate in the veins as it is unable to carry it upwards defying the gravitational pull due its incompetency.
Phlebologists who provide treatment for varicose veins in Minneapolis attribute its causes to the following:
·        Genetically inherited defective valves.
