Tired, Aching Legs (and pain in the calf muscles)

Tired, aching legs are very common, mostly in females and also in elderly people.

Symptoms

Typically, peole suffer from a consistent dull ache at the back of the lower leg. Often behind the knee or in the calf muscles. Aching legs are most prominent after standing for long periods of time. Women wearing high heels often complain about tired, aching legs.

What causes aching legs?

The most common cause of aching legs is poor blood circulation in the leg arteries. This produces an aching, tired, and sometimes burning pain in the legs. A secondary cause of leg pain is strain and stretching of the calf muscles as a result of poor foot function.

As the feet roll inwards (over-pronation) the legs rotate internally, placing stress on the muscles at the back the legs. Standing for long periods of time will make this condition worse. Wearing high heeled shoes also contributes to tired, aching legs.

 

 

Treatment and relief from tired, aching legs

Footlogics orthotics control excess pronation of the feet. As a result this will decrease internal rotation of the legs and the stretching on the leg muscles, thereby reducing tired, aching legs. Other treatment options for tired, aching legs include applying an ice pack to the calves for approx. 5-10 minutes.

For women wearing fashion shoes with a heel, Footlogics Catwalk insoles can be very effective to help prevent aching legs.
