The term “rest pain” refers to pain in the lower legs or feet that isn’t caused by activity. Rest pain tends to be a severe burning or cramping sensation. It is generally caused by peripheral artery disease (PAD) .
Virtually Incapacitating Foot Pain
If you’ve experienced rest pain, you know that it can keep you off your feet. However, the problem is caused by a lack of blood flow to the area. So, being inactive makes the condition worse.
Get Treatment to Get Back on Your Feet
The good news is that there are treatments that can address PAD. Nonsurgical procedures like peripheral artery atherectomy and peripheral artery stenting can restore blood flow. This improves the vascular health of the legs and minimizes or eliminates rest pain and other symptoms.
