  • ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS SHARES SOME THOUGHTS ABOUT POOR CIRCULATION

Poor Circulation

Poor circulation in the feet is a major concern because it may signal other health problems. Circulatory problems may be marked by persistent, unusual feeling of cold, numbness, tingling, swelling, burning or fatigue in feet and legs. Other symptoms may include discoloured skin, dry skin, absence of hair on feet or legs, or cramping or tightness in leg muscles.

Causes of poor circulation

  • Hypertension and/or cardiovascular disease
  • Diabetes
  • Kidney, heart or circulatory problems
  • Smoking

What can you do?

  • Don’t wear tight clothing on your legs or feet (pantyhose, girdles, thigh-highs or knee-highs or dress socks that constrict).
  • Walking can increase the size and improve the efficiency of the tiny vessels that supply blood to tissues.
  • Anyone diagnosed with poor circulation should see a doctor before beginning exercise walking.
  • Tell your chiropdist about any pre-existing condition you may have, including hypertension, diabetes, rheumatic heart disease, anemia or kidney problems.

How can our Chiropodists help you?

  • Conduct vascular examination.
  • Provide advice on preventing the development of sores, infections or non-healing ulcers.
  • Evaluate the need for referral to a vascular surgeon.
  • You can be sure that if you consult Dr. Hardy at Academy Foot and Orthotic you will be provided with honest, competent advice or foot care. please contact us at 416-465-8737.
