Causes of Varicose Veins:

Arteries carry blood from heart & veins return blood to the Heart. To return blood to the heart, the veins in the legs must work against gravity. Muscle contractions in lower legs act as pumps. Tiny valves in veins open and blood flows toward the heart. These tiny valves close to stop blood from flowing backward.

If these valves get weak blood will flow backward and will accumulate in the vein itself, causing the veins to stretch or twist.
