Leg Wedge
 
Good circulation helps your body stay healthy, heal well and properly function during daily activities.

 
Use a Leg Wedge to Relieve and Prevent Leg Circulation Problems
 
Special exercise equipment, products and shoe wear that promote circulation, such as a bed wedge or leg wedge, is a great way to improve blood flow to your legs. A leg wedge gently elevates your legs, keeping you in a pressure-neutral position.

A leg wedge can help:
  • Reduce pressure on the lower spine.
  • Relieve muscle tension.
  • Increase circulation.
  • Reduce stress on the heart.

The Jobri Spine Reliever Bed Wedge, sold here on FootSmart.com, features a bi-foam cushion covered with visco-elastic heat-sensitive memory foam that conforms to fit your legs. The cushion, covered in a hypoallergenic terry cloth with a non-slip bottom, is washable and easy to keep clean. Remember to shop FootSmart for your leg wedge needs.

Important Shopping Tip: When ordering a leg wedge, remember to buy the right size for your height!
 
Using a Leg Wedge Is Not the Only Way to Improve Leg Circulation
 
The most important treatment for poor leg circulation is to address the risk factors:
  • Avoid cigarette smoking.
  • Keep your blood pressure under control.
  • Keep your cholesterol levels in the healthy range.
  • Exercise on a regular and frequent basis.
  • Keep moving – avoid staying immobile for long periods of time
  • Keep your feet and extremities warm.
  • Wear graduated compression hosiery and socks that help stimulate circulation.

The Podiatry Institute suggests that you always see your physician if you suspect you have poor leg circulation, as the condition can be serious and an indication of another medical problem. Sometimes a leg wedge is not enough, and medications may be needed to treat leg circulation problems and help prevent more serious consequences.
