Causes of Poor Circulation
Poor circulation is often a side effect of another health concern. Your lack of adequate blood flow may be caused by:
- Blood clots
- Restricted blood vessels
- Blocked arteries
- Peripheral artery disease
If you have poor circulation or suspect that you have poor circulation, you will need to have your feet examined. If not treated, this condition can lead to further issues, including tissue death.
Here at Advanced Foot and Ankle Centers, we offer an in clinic and same day blood flow test (ABI) to further evaluate your blood flow. This procedure is pain-free and can provide valuable information.
Although we can’t solve the underlying problem if something like diabetes is causing poor circulation in your feet, there are steps we can take to improve your circulation and lessen the pain or muscle cramps you may be experiencing.
