Insoles for Blood Circulation Issues in the Feet

If you know you are experiencing poor circulation in your feet, boosting your blood flow could be as simple as wearing OrthoSole insoles in your regular shoes!

Read on to learn more about how our orthotic insoles can improve blood circulation as part of a wider treatment plan.

What causes poor circulation in these areas?

Lots of things can prevent the blood from flowing freely in the lower limbs. Periphery artery disease, sometimes shortened to PAD, can occur when plaque starts to build up in the arteries as a result of too much calcium or cholesterol in the bloodstream. Damage to the veins – such as in the case of varicose veins – can also be the culprit.

Those with diabetes are more susceptible to circulation issues and heightened sensitivity in the feet.

How do you know if you have blood circulation issues?

People who are experiencing disrupted blood flow in the feet will often report the following symptoms:

  • Feet that feel tired, heavy and fatigued
  • Feet that are exceptionally cold, especially during sleep
  • Feet and ankles that are swollen, inflamed or retaining excess fluids
  • Tingling sensations or pins and needles
  • The development of varicose veins

 

If you suspect you are suffering from poor circulation, book an appointment with your GP or another medical professional as soon as possible. If left untreated, bad blood circulation could lead to further health complications, including severe nerve damage if you are diabetic.

What treatments are available?

You can try:

  • Compression socks, which can help to bring down swelling and alleviate discomfort
  • Specialist physical exercises designed to increase circulation
  • Laser or endopic surgery if varicose veins are restricting blood flow
  • Stopping smoking
  • Losing weight if you are overweight or obese

 

Wearing our OrthoSole insoles regularly will also help to improve circulation in the feet.

How can our insoles improve circulation?

As well as helping to keep your feet stable in your shoes, and therefore less susceptible to friction and discomfort, the softer and more supportive sole within our insoles for poor circulation works to improve blood flow by delivering additional support to each foot arch.

 

Added benefits of wearing our insoles include better foot stability, improved alignment in the ankle joints and the wider musculoskeletal system, and reduced fatigue in the feet and legs.

Which of our products work best?

All our insoles will help to combat bad circulation in the feet. The trick is to choose a product that fits your footwear like a glove!
