Introduction to Poor Circulation

Your body relies on blood, oxygen, and nutrients to function properly. Your circulation system is responsible for transporting those necessary components throughout your body.

 

Poor circulation is common in extremities (feet, legs, arms) and can result in devastating conditions:

 

  • Tingling
  • Numb sensations
  • Throbbing
  • Stinging

Poor circulation is caused by other health issues and is not a condition in itself. Conditions that primarily influence blood flow are obesity, diabetes, heart conditions, and arterial problems.

 

Maintaining a healthy weight, engaging in regular exercise, avoiding smoking, getting a massage, and using a circulation promoter, assist in increasing your circulation.
