#seo: heavy legs routine

How to recognize heavy legs?

As soon as the thermostat goes into overdrive above 25°C, blood circulation becomes complicated and the notorious heavy legs and their unpleasant sensation return. Swelling, pins and needles, traces of our shoes on our feet... these are the most common signs of poor circulation.

Other signs of heavy legs include :

  • Tingling in the legs

  • Frequent cramps

  • Itching

  • Numbness accompanied by the need to stretch legs or move around

  • Swelling of feet, ankles and calves.

  • The appearance of small dilated blood vessels beneath the skin's surface

What causes heavy legs? 

Heavy legs are mainly due to poor blood circulation in the legs. The blood doesn't flow properly up to the heart, stagnating in the leg veins, giving the sensation of heavy legs. Blood circulation in the legs is enhanced by walking, as the vessels on the underside of the foot are compressed, propelling blood upwards. This process is then relayed by the calf muscles, which contract, allowing the blood to continue its ascent towards the heart. However, all these efforts are useless when the valves blocking the return flow of blood allow the blood to flow back down under the effect of gravity. Blood will then stagnate in the legs, causing the sensation of heavy legs.
