Poor circulation in feet is a critical underlying factor in a wide variety of severe health problems, including non-healing ulcers, increased risk of severe infections, and potentially even amputation.
Unfortunately, for many people, vascular testing is the only way to identify the early warning signs of poor circulation before the problem becomes serious. Not all people with vascular problems experience noticeable symptoms, or at least not until significant and irreversible damage has already occurred.
Routine vascular screenings, according to a schedule set by you and your doctor, can help identify any emerging issues—and counteract them—before they become severe.
If you are older than 65 (regardless of health status) or have diabetes, smoke, or have a personal or family history of circulatory or cardiovascular disease, getting a regular vascular screening is a critical step you should take to help protect your long-term health.
If you are in any of the high risk demographics and haven’t had a vascular test recently, please give our office a call. Tests are quick, painless, and covered by almost all insurance plans.
