The status of our circulatory fitness can be affected by health, hormonal changes or influenced by a hereditary condition.
For many, modern living increasingly involves less exercise and we don’t get the activity we need that keeps our blood flowing enough to support good circulation.
Very few of us are naturally equipped to become athletes, yet we are advised to exercise more as it promotes a healthy, happy lifestyle; but pushing our bodies beyond our limits can result in physical weaknesses emerging, followed by discomfort and injury.
Even the physically adept and strong athlete requires intensive treatment to protect and help heal their body.
The legs, often taking the greatest strain, are a focus for special treatment.

Unlike our animal ancestors, we stand upright, making our bodies work against gravity to pump blood back up to the heart.
Our legs play a crucial part in ensuring it flows around the body efficiently, so keeping them active is essential to our general well-being.
Our muscles need a constant supply of fresh oxygen and nutrients, which are provided in the blood stream and generated through exercise.
Lack of activity inhibits healthy circulation meaning that our muscles don’t get what they need, so they become fatigued and cause discomfort.
Lack of regular exercise and leg stimulation can lead to the development of serious problems such as: varicose veins, spider veins, DVTs, or simply unhealthy looking aching legs.
Without the help of exercise contracting the muscles and pumping blood to the heart, our legs are much more inefficient at their job.
Although lack of exercise is generally a matter of choice people who sit or stand for long periods through work or have mobility constraints are at particular risk.
