I can't really say that I know what it's like to walk in a woman's shoes, but I do know that legs, wonderful as they are, aren't always the perfect things of beauty and grace we wish them to be. Sometimes they hurt. Sometimes they swell. Turns out, that could be a sign of something much worse than just having a bad day, like vascular disease. Oh, and guys? This affects you, too.

Swelling or discomfort in your legs could be a sign of varicose veins, which are a common symptom of vascular disease, which can afflict both men and women. It might be nothing, but if you ignore those symptoms, it could get a whole lot worse. The good news is, a local clinic is offering a free educational screening from a pair of the best doctors in Missoula.

Dr. Swannack and Dr. Pickhardt from Missoula Surgical Associates will be available for free educational screenings on Saturday, September 24th from 9 a.m. to Noon (right before the Griz football game) at their office on the 5th Floor of the Broadway Building, 500 West Broadway in Missoula, adjacent to St. Patrick Hospital. Call 542-7525 to make an appointment, today.

If you are experiencing any pain or discomfort in your legs, please take advantage of this opportunity to learn from the best doctors in Missoula.
