What exercises do you have for claudication, or intermittent claudication? Our physiotherapist tells more about it in this blog.

Claudication, or intermittent claudication, is caused by narrowed blood vessels. This narrowing is caused by calcification of the arteries. This means that insufficient blood, and therefore too little oxygen, can be led to the leg muscles. Very annoying, because it causes you pain when you take a short or long walk. If you want to do something about this pain, it is nice to know which exercises for claudication are best to perform. There is certainly a solution for intermittent claudication. Our specialized physiotherapist from Fysi Tilburg is happy to help you with this.

Problems and complaints with window legs

If you suffer from sagging legs, this will manifest itself in pain in your feet, calves, thighs or buttocks. This pain occurs while walking, because the movements do not allow enough blood and oxygen to be transported to the leg muscles. At rest, when you stand still, the muscles relax. At such a moment it is possible for the oxygen to reach your muscles. Your pain will soon diminish. The result? It is becoming less and less attractive to exercise, because it only hurts. By knowing which exercises are good to do for your sagging legs, you can counteract the pain little by little.
