The lower limb venous system is responsible for returning blood from the foot, leg, and thigh toward the heart. Chronic venous disease occurs by an inability of the blood to completely return due to structural or functional abnormalities of the veins of the lower limbs. Varicose veins are enlarged veins that have become tortious and abnormally swollen. This study was taken to evaluate, diagnose, and rehabilitate varicose veins by physiotherapy interventions. The patient presented at our outpatient department with severe varicose veins. She was assessed, and a patient-specific 2-month rehabilitation program was formulated. This study helps us to understand various aspects involved in the condition, its prognosis, and management by physiotherapy interventions.
