Leg Pain

Treatment for Pain in Westchester

By Dr. Donna D'Alessio


Most people with venous insufficiency experience cosmetic symptoms such as varicose veins or spider veins. However, sometimes venous insufficiency can lead to leg swelling, pain and cramping (also known as restless leg syndrome) Without treatment, these issues can get worse and lead to chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), which may contribute to leg ulcers or other skin issues.

Our Facility

Treatment for Leg Pain issues including swelling, pain and cramping

The following treatments may be performed:

Radio Frequency Ablation

Radio Frequency Ablation

Radiofrequency ablation, or RFA, is a minimally invasive alternative to eliminate abnormal veins, redirect blood flow to healthy veins, and relieve discomfort. For more on RFA



This state-of-the art procedure involves injecting a solution directly into the vein. The sclerotherapy solution causes the vein to scar, causing the blood to reroute through healthier veins. The collapsed vein is reabsorbed into local tissue and gradually fades. For more on Sclerotherapy go here.

Leg Pain FAQs

How common are these symptoms?

Leg swelling, leg pain, and cramping (also restless leg syndrome) are very common symptoms for venous insufficiency.

What causes spider veins?

Leg pain, swelling, and cramping are mainly caused by varicose veins. For some patients, varicose veins can lie under the surface of the skin, so many patients are not aware that their symptoms are associated with the veins. When veins are leaky, blood can pool and be stagnant which can cause the leg pain, swelling, and cramping.

How can the causes be diagnosed?

The causes can be diagnosed by coming into a medical office for a physical examination. Swelling can be visible, and a venous ultrasound can be conducted to confirm whether or not these symptoms are caused by varicose veins, and venous insufficiency.

What are the treatment options?

Treatment options are compression stockings, exercise, antibiotics, radiofrequency ablations, sclerotherapy, and phlebectomy.
