Leg pain causes and treatment

Leg pain can have multiple causes.

  • Poor circulation
    • Decreased arterial blood flow to the leg
    • Decreased venous blood return from the legs
  • Musculoskeletal pain
  • Nerve pain
  • Lack of good hydration and electrolytes imbalance.
Today we are going to talk about poor circulation where there is low blood flow to the legs. Major risk factors are: Diabetes, Hypertension, High Cholesterol, Smoking or history of smoking, sedentary life style and age above 50.
We can diagnose poor circulation by history, physical exam and duplex ultrasound examination.
I am going to talk about these in more detail next time.
