Despite using our legs every day, we often overlook our leg health.
In the UK, there are limited protocols for detecting issues in the lower limbs in the early stages.
This means that the most common conditions affecting leg health, including lymphoedema, chronic venous insufficiency (CVI), and peripheral arterial disease (PAD), are rarely diagnosed before more serious symptoms emerge. This can often lead to avoidable patient harm and a lower quality of life.
Preventative care is the key to managing your overall leg health. Prevention depends on identifying lower limb issues early and implementing the appropriate treatment plan shortly after.
