The Cause of Cold Feet

Do your toes frequently feel cold, even under perfectly comfortable conditions? You may have a problem that goes deeper than the temperature. There are several conditions that may account for cold feet, all of which you should be on the lookout for to prevent significant problems in the future.

One of the bigger culprits behind cold feet is poor circulation. When blood has to struggle to reach your extremities, it’s going to lose much of its warming power by the time it reaches your toes. This can point to high blood pressure or heart disease.

The problem may also be linked to your nervous system. Diabetes or sciatica can compromise the nerves that run down your leg, bringing about a cold sensation. In some cases, you may be able to loosen up your back muscles enough with a massage at our Tacoma foot massage clinic. Consult your doctor for more information.
