Ischemic Foot Menu

What is ischemic foot?

Ischemic foot refers to a lack of adequate arterial blood flow from the heart to the foot. There are a wide variety of possible causes, including arterial blockage from cholesterol deposits, arterial blood clots, arterial spasm, or arterial injury. An ischemic foot suffers from an inadequate blood supply reaching the foot to provide the oxygen and nutrient needs required for the cells to continue to function.

Treatment includes:

  • Walking exercises to increase blood flow
  • Protective shoes and insoles if necessary
  • Medications

Consult us before taking any medication.
