Circulation problems and conditions can affect anyone, making everyday activities more challenging. If you, or someone you know, suffers from circulation problems they may have:
- Tingling limbs
- Numbness in the specific area
- Throbbing sensations in their limbs
At Adjustamatic, we understand how distressing it can be to live with poor circulation and have created a selection of informative pages to help you.
What are circulatory problems?
The circulatory system is the body’s blood transport system and problems occur when there is an issue in your system. This may cause symptoms, which impact daily activities such as mobility, from poor blood circulation, or sleeping at night.
Circulation problems can occur in many forms, some due to health conditions and some not. Issues such as swollen ankles, varicose veins or night leg cramps can sometimes be relieved with simple exercises and stretches as a simple first step.
Understanding how the body works can help you manage circulation problems – particularly by helping to improve lymphatic flow, which plays an important role in the body’s ability to drain excess fluid. A build-up of this excess fluid can lead to Oedema, which is when there is excess fluid in the tissues. When trying to relieve water retention (Oedema) that’s not linked to a health condition, increasing circulation by sleeping with feet elevated can help.
Circulation problems in the lower body
Poor circulation in the lower body can affect people in a number of common ways. Fortunately, there are a few things that you can do at home to improve lower limb circulation.
Leg ulcers are a break in skin often referred to as ‘open sores’ and are a long-lasting problem for many people that can be extremely painful. Having a good understanding of leg ulcers can help you better manage the condition, including keeping the area clean, resting your leg and seeking medical help if needed.
Another concern mainly of the lower limbs is cellulitis, a bacterial infection of the skin and deep tissues. It can happen at any age and causes the area to swell and become sore.
