DON'T IGNORE LEG PAIN

 

PODIATRIST, DR. KELLY POWERS STATES, "LEG PAIN SHOULD NOT BE IGNORED. SPECIFICALLY, IF IT IS POSTERIOR AND UNILATERAL.  IT COULD BE A SIGN OF DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS, WHICH MEANS A BLOOD CLOT.  BLOOD CLOTS CAN BE STATIONARY, BUT IF THEY MOVE, THEY CAN TRAVEL TO THE HEART, LUNGS, OR BRAIN AND CAUSE A STROKE OR EVEN DEATH. IF YOU HAVE LEG PAIN, YOU NEED TO HAVE THIS CHECKED OUT WITH DOPPLER AND SEE A VASCULAR SURGEON AS SOON AS POSSIBLE."

ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINIC IS EQUIPPED WITH DOPPLER AND IF WE SUSPECTED THAT ANY PATIENT HAD A DEEP VEIN THROMBOSIS, THEY WOULD BE IMMEDIATELY REFERRED TO THE EMERGENCY DEPARTMENT AT A LOCAL HOSPITAL.
