Poor Circulation

What is Poor Circulation?

Poor circulationPoor circulation is not a “condition” as such. Poor circulation is most acutely felt in your extremities, for example, you may have permanently cold feet.

What Causes Poor Circulation?

  • Blood circulates around the body in veins, arteries and capillaries, carrying oxygen and nutrients to the working parts of the body. If circulation is compromised, these parts do not receive oxygen and stop working properly. You may experience tingling or numbness or a feeling of being cold. This could be indicative of an underlying systemic problem and you should seek medical advice.

Treatments

  • There is no specific treatment for poor circulation, as it is the result of a systemic underlying condition. Treating the condition should alleviate the numbness or tingling. We may refer you to your GP or other medical expert.
