Aching Legs
Aching LegsAching legs is described as cramping or aching that occurs in your legs and feet when you are sleeping or immobile for extended periods of time. This is a complicated condition (and may be due to vascular disturbance and or mineral deficiency) but is usually due to increased tension of the myofascial system. Myofascial pain is due to abnormal trigger point activity in the body’s musculoskeletal system, which compromises normal vascular flow (see biomechanics page). Treatment involves custom orthotics to place the feet and legs in the most efficient posture, myofascial massage, acupuncture, dietary therapy and stretching exercises.
