Poor Circulation

Poor Circulation can lead to multiple issues and conditions in the lower extremity. Symptoms include cramping, numbness, burning, as well as weakness in the lower legs and feet.  In diabetic patients, poor circulation, can be specially dangerous due to leading to poor wound healing and increasing the chances of an amputation.  Yearly circulation studies are suggested for certain patients to rule out, blood clotting as well as the need for vascular intervention.  Should poor ultrasound results be present, the patient will be referred to a vascular specialist for evaluation.
